In our Development Team meeting we decided we will develop our elgg based website in two tracks: one in 1.8beta and one based on the current release 1.79. Today I started the downgrade to elgg 1.79.
Because I also develop software for IIS, I want to create a development environment on my laptop with IIS/PHP/MySQL instead of the usual Apache/PHP/MySQL. Normally that is not a big problem, main thing -most of the time- is importing the rewrite rules from the .htaccess file. In elgg it is not different, but the documentation is a bit incomplete at this point.
