When I read about how cool google tap was and how it would drive traffic to your site by allowing your site to be indexed by the search engine. I wasted no time in installing it onto my site, the only problem is my server is an IIS server and I do not have access to an htaccess file. I was so sure that there was a simple solution that I searched the forums on nuke cops and google but only found that most people said that it can not be done. So I did a little more research on htaccess and mod_rewrite and I found a solution. And now I am please to give back to the community that has given so much to me Smile


Tools needed:
ISAPI_Rewrite lite, you can download from: http://www.isapirewrite.com/download/
http.ini file you can download it from here: http://rpgworld.ath.cx/downloads-cat12.html


Installation:
1. Install Google tap/GT-NExtGEn as normal (I use GT-NExtGEn)
2. Install ISAPI_Rewrite on your server (or have your ISP do it)
3. Copy the provided http.ini file to the ISAPI_Rewrite directory which should be located at C:\program files\Helicon\ISAPI_Rewrite
4. Open IIS server manager and locate your website
     a. Right click on properties
     b. Select ISAPI_Filters
     c. Click Add
       1. In the filter name box type: ISAPI_Rewrite
       2. in the executable box browse to the ISAPI_Rewrite.dll located in the ISAPI_Rewrite folder
     d. Click ok and then click ok again.
5. Close IIS and test



TODO:
1. Eventually I want to add more code to the http.ini file such as the:
"lines check for Email Spammers Robots and redirect them to a fake page"

I am not sure how to do that at this point but I will be looking into it. If someone else knows how to handle this please by all means share the knowledge.

2. I want to make sure all rewrite pages are valid and that there are no dread page can not be displayed or 404 error page.


You can see it in action by visting my site at http://rpgworld.ath.cx which is running on IIS Smile

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to post or email me!

Thanks!

That's fantastic info, NeXeH! However, it seems that the site http://www.isapirewrite.com/download/ is down.

Does anyone have or know where I can get a copy of ISAPI_Rewrite lite?

Thanks!

Hi Madd,

My forums do work. You can go directly to them by click on this link:
http://rpgworld.ath.cx/forums.html

Now to your problem, I have updated the file on my site with a new http.ini to place in your ISAPI_Rewrite directory. It has more updates that were missing in the previous version.

Also can you post or pm me your website so I can take a look at it and see why it is not working for you?

Thanks,

-NeXeH

Ok madd Smile I think we can work through this. First of all your forums are working (partially) Try this url:

http://www.tj.henington.net/forums.html

Now the problem is the session id variable we need to get rid of that. What you need to do is go into the forum administration and click on configuration. Find the section that deals with cookies settings and delete the value in the cookie domain. Hit submit and then try your forums.

You may need to clean your browser cache.

Second I notice your left hand navigation is not pointing to the correct url for your pages. You may need to click on the modules setting in the nuke administration section and set each module to its prefered googletap settings. ie forums should be set to forums.html.

Let me know if this works for you.

THANK YOU for your help!!! My forums now work,... I see what you are talking about on my menu... I was wondering, my Downloads link doesnt work.. But when I typed in downloads.html it did work...


So, now I need to fix my menu... I'll have to search to figure out how to do this easily... ( if there is an easy way ). I'm using Somminaire menu...


Thanks again,

Hi..
After many many hours of work I finally gave up.. Im a loser ! I cant get it to work. Does anybody have a few minutes to give me some advice ?..

Im running PhPNuke 7.0 on a Win2000 IIS server. Installed the GT-NExtGEn 0.4 and the ISAPI files. I did exactly as it said in the instructions here in the forum and in the install files that follows with GT.
I only get a 404 error when trying to connect to a HTML file.

my server is at: http://8kings.com/australien/
and this is the address I have specified in the admin/preferences to.

Im thinking the problem could be that i have the html files in a directory http://8kings.com/australien/*.* and not in the root of my site ? http://8kings.com/*.*

Could that be a problem ?

Im not really sure how to check that the installation went well with ISAPI. anybody know how to check this?.

If I look in the ISAPI dir in the file "httpd.parse.errors" i find this:

Line 205: Unrecognized string: RewriteRule /viewlinkcomments-([0-9]+)-([[:punct:]/:\-\'(){}.&=_a-zA-Z0-9\ ]*)\.html /modules.php\?name=Web_Links&l_op=viewlinkcomments&lid=$1&ttitle=$2
Line 206: Unrecognized string: RewriteRule /viewlinkdetails-([0-9]+)-([[:punct:]/:\-\'(){}.&=_a-zA-Z0-9\ ]*)\.html /modules.php\?name=Web_Links&l_op=viewlinkdetails&lid=$1&ttitle=$2
Line 207: Unrecognized string: RewriteRule /vieweditorial-([0-9]+)-([[:punct:]/:\-\'(){}.&=_a-zA-Z0-9\ ]*)\.html /modules.php\?name=Web_Links&l_op=viewlinkeditorial&lid=$1&ttitle=$2
Line 215: Unrecognized string: RewriteRule /ratelink-([0-9]*)-([[:punct:]/:\-\'(){}.&=_a-zA-Z0-9\ ]*)\.html /modules.php\?op=modload&name=Web_Links&file=index&l_op=ratelink&lid=$1&ttitle=$2
Line 242: Unrecognized string: RewriteRule /analysis-admin-([a-zA-Z0-9_-]*)-([[:punct:]/:\-\'(){}.&=_a-zA-Z0-9\ ]*)\.html /modules.php\?name=MS_Analysis&file=msanalysisadminfunc&op=$1&id=$2


Does anybody understand any of that ?

would a admin login to the site help you help me ?. Smile

sorry ppl for taking youre time with this, but any help......
(ps. sorry for any typos)

I checked my server as well and I have the same errors. I will need to look into this further. However that should not stop it from working for you.

Did you copy of the http.ini file to the ISAPI_Rewrite folder?

yes the http.ini is there... didnt change anything in it.

I tried creating a brand new phpnuke site, new database, and everything that goes with it. I have the same problem there... so it shouldnt be anything related to any modifications I did to the phpnuke files pre GT install.


As a last restort I now tried disabling the firewall, as I thought that didnt help Smile

by the way, the htaccess file. Should it be placed in http://8kings.com/ or in http://8kings.com/australien/ where the phpnuke is located. Do I need to change anything in it as it is placed in a subfolder?

NeXeH, can you draft a news article here so we can start advertising this to the community at large?

Can you give me the URL of this new site, maybe if we work from there we can figure something out.

Sure can Zhen-Xjell! Is there any particular format you would like me to use and/or say?
