WordPress on Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Server: Only Home Page works


I recently moved a WordPress site from Apache Server to Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Server, the problem is, when moving to IIS Server, only homepage works. When I go to archive page or single page, it returns 404 error. I think it because IIS doesn’t understand the <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> in htaccess rewrite wordpress)

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

# END WordPress

So I tried to convert the htaccess above to web.cofig like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                <rule name="Main Rule" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url=".*" />
                    <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
                        <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
                        <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />

But it returns 500 error. Does anyone know how to solve it?
