Hello All,


I have been using pagethods in application without any issues. Ever since i included iirf into my project all pagemethods seems to have stopped working.

I have put debug code all over but it does'nt seems to hit the server side function at all.

Anybody encountered similar problem.

Check the IIRF logfile.

Thanks for your reply.

Okay. The sad part is iirf is not generating log file. Here's how iirf.ini looks like.

RewriteEngine ON
RewriteFilterPriority HIGH
StatusUrl /iirfStatus
RewriteLogLevel 3
RewriteLog myirfs
MaxMatchCount 10
IterationLimit 10
RewriteRule ^/v/([^/]+)   /v.aspx?q=$1 [I]


Also, when i turn off rewriteengine all seems to work.

You have no RewriteLog or RewriteLogLEvel directive in the ini file. When you set those, you'll get a log file.

This is explained very clearly in the documentation.

I do -

RewriteLogLevel 3
RewriteLog myirfs

oh, sorry I missed that.

And does the IIS user have permissions in the directory - the same directory in which iirf.ini is found, to create files?

if IIS cannot create a file, there will be no logfile.

Thanks for the pointer Cheeso.

Gave the permission. log is showing up now.

What should i be looking in log file?

You should look for pagemethod requests being rewritten, that shouldn't be.
