Will .htaccess work in a Windows server?
Directly putting .htaccess rules won't work in a Windows server. However, there are two methods available to accomplish this.
- For any hosting plan (shared, VPS, dedicated server)
- Write the rules for your site or application on the web.config file. It is located in the Root directory of your Web Application. Syntax is different from the .htaccess.
- IIS manager
- If you have access to IIS manager (available only in VPS and dedicated server plans), you can write the rules under "URL rewrite".
- Please note that the syntax is different from the one for .htaccess.
