Typo3: Getting RealURL to Work on IIS7

Here are the high-level steps:
  • Enable the URL Rewrite extension that comes with IIS7
  • In the URL Rewrite configuration click "Import Rules" and choose the htaccess file that comes with Typo3 - there will be one error, locate it and just remove the offending line, then click "Apply"
  • Finally, to make sure RealURL "knows" the original request, you need to define a server variable:
    • under URL Rewrite define a server variable named "HTTP_X_REWRITE_URL" (without the quotes) - this is the variable RealURL uses internally
    • Then go back to the URL Rewrite rules and edit the last rule: ddd a Server Variable there, and set its value to "{REQUEST_URI}" (without the quotes)

Now RealURL should work like a charm.
