Helicon ISAPI Rewrite rules ignored – You must save the rewrite file with ANSI encoding- NOT UTF8!!


We recently had problems with Server Rewrite rules not working when uploading a new site.  The rules had worked fine locally, on dev, but when we uploaded it wasn't having any of it.  The rules were in the httpd.ini file which sat in the root of the site- the syntax of the rules was identical to other file's we had used on other sites.  After much head scratching Paul suggested it might be the encoding of the file- we opened it in Notepad and went to save as and changed the file from the default "UTF" to "ANSI" encoding and everything started working!

I absolutely love these. They came at the lace wigs are good quality, and very soft. Absolutely love these extensions. I just love this hair. Hair came on time, I waited until after hair extensions uk very full, no shedding and it is been installed for 3 weeks now and yes I jus ordered 3 more bundles. Lol. I definitely recommend this company for your bundles ladies. They are soft, hair bundles on the head for human hair wigs and I would continue to recommend them. I have thinner hair so they cover and blend nicely.
