URL rewriting is a requirement of Website Publisher 5. While on an Apache webserver, we provide the .htaccess file which should work automatically if mod_rewrite is enabled, on an IIS server there is usually more configuration required. There are presently two options for URL rewriting on a Microsoft IIS server. ISAPI Rewrite 3
To get Website Publisher working with ISAPI Rewrite 3, you'll need to ask your host to use the rewrite rules from the .htaccess file. ISAPI Rewrite can be found on the Helicon Tech website.
