Codeigniter 2 on IIS with web.config file

I have a codeigniter app working fine locally with WAMP. However, I am having trouble getting it to work on an IIS server. Please note that I do not want to enable query strings.

Here is what I currently have in my web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
<system.webServer>
<rewrite>
<rules>
<rule name="Clean URL" stopProcessing="true">
<match url="^(.*)$" />
<conditions>
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
</conditions>
<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php/{R:1}" appendQueryString="false" />
</rule>
</rules>
</rewrite>
</system.webServer>
</configuration>


This causes the main page to load properly: www.website.com/policies

However, when I click on an item to go to: www.website.com/policies/policy/view/31

The proper page is not displayed. The main page continues to be displayed.

The controller is Policy and the function is view(). The Codeigniter files are in a policies/ folder on the server.

I think the problem may be with my web.config file. The Config file's $config['base_url'] is dynamically calculated and is the correct one. The Config file's $config['index_page'] is blank. What do you think is causing this problem?

Thank you all for your help.

Have you look at the example in the CI forums?
