    Installing Network on IIS8.5 hosted site, by beggemey

    Installed a fresh install of wordpress on an IIS 8.5 server. I followed the instructions here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network. When I finish the install by copying the new code into my web.config file, sign out and back in. The “My Sites” link does not show up in the dashboard. However, when I click on network setup under tools it says “warning: an existing wordpress network was detected.” I have read that the automatically generated code isn’t always correct. Here’s the code it generated.
    “<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
    <rule name=”WordPress Rule 1″ stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”^index\.php$” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <action type=”None” />
    <rule name=”WordPress Rule 2″ stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”^wordpress/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <action type=”Redirect” url=”{R:1}wp-admin/” redirectType=”Permanent” />
    <rule name=”WordPress Rule 3″ stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”^” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <conditions logicalGrouping=”MatchAny”>
    <add input=”{REQUEST_FILENAME}” matchType=”IsFile” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <add input=”{REQUEST_FILENAME}” matchType=”IsDirectory” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <action type=”None” />
    <rule name=”WordPress Rule 4″ stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”^wordpress/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*)” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <action type=”Rewrite” url=”wordpress/{R:1}” />
    <rule name=”WordPress Rule 5″ stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”^wordpress/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <action type=”Rewrite” url=”wordpress/{R:2}” />
    <rule name=”WordPress Rule 6″ stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”.” ignoreCase=”false” />
    <action type=”Rewrite” url=”index.php” />
