Using Helicon ISAPI_Rewrite 3 with cfwheels URL rewriting

Maybe one for the cfwheels docs..

The URL rewriting chapter in the CFWheels docs mentions Ionic’s ISAPI Rewrite Filter. However, I’ve got a machine which is running IIS6 and version 3 of the Helicon Tech ISAPI rewrite module. Version 3 of this module uses .htaccess, rather than the .ini files of version 2.

If you’re planning on running CFWheels with full rewriting using Version 3 of this module, you’ll need to modify the .htaccess file supplied for use with apache. Don’t worry, it’s just a full stop (that’s period to you USA people) needs removing..

in the last line:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ./rewrite.cfm/$1 [L]

Should read

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /rewrite.cfm/$1 [L]

Then it appears to play nicely.
