I am working on a new installation of Drupal 8 (8.1.8) on a Windows Server 2012 running IIS 8. I have installed PHP v7.0.9 and MySQL v5.7.14. During the installation process, I must have done something wrong. Upon completion, the home page is just the HTML without any styling and all of the links return an HTTP Error 404.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need to get this site up and running ASAP.


I have also posted this on Drupal Answers with images!

**UPDATE:** I have also tried using drush to clear the cache.

**UPDATE #2:** It would seem as though my HTTP problem comes from the URL Rewrite module not working properly.

**UPDATE #3:** The site now has styling!!!!!! After reading [this post](, I realized that there was no ‘tmp’ directory in ‘/sites/default/files’. However, there is still a problem with the URL Rewrite. I have to include ‘/index.php’ in every url to go to any pages.
