Microsoft URL Rewrite Module 2.0 for IIS 7 – Beta (x86)
URL Rewrite Module 2.0 provides a rule-based rewriting mechanism for changing requested URLÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s before they get processed by web server and for modifying response content before it gets served to HTTP clients.
Microsoft URL Rewrite Module 2.0 for IIS 7 Beta is an incremental release that includes all the features from version 1.1, and adds support for outbound response rewriting. More specifically, it can be used to:
Ã‚Â· Replace the URLs generated by a web application in the response HTML with a more user friendly and search engine friendly equivalent.
Ã‚Â· Modify the links in the HTML markup generated by a web application behind a reverse proxy.
Ã‚Â· Fix up the content of any HTTP response by using regular expression pattern matching.
The installation package includes several additional components and hotfixes required by URL Rewrite Module 2.0 Beta. Refer to the KB articles for the hotfixes to get more details. In order to apply the hotfixes correctly without restarting the server, it is recommended that the WAS service is stopped before installing URL Rewrite Module 2.0 Beta.
• Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7; Windows Server 2008; Windows Vista Service Pack 1
• Internet Information Services 7 must be installed
• IIS 7 supports a new shared configuration environment, which must be disabled on each server in a web farm before installing the URL Rewrite Module for each node. Note: shared configuration can be re-enabled after the URL Rewrite Module has been installed.
