IIS web.config for https://www.prerender.cloud/ for prerendering (server-side rendering) webpages.


It's possible your IIS server may already have steps 1 and 2 and 4 mostly done already - in which case, just go to step 5.

  1. use the Web Platform Installer to install "URL Rewrite" (see more here if having problems)
  2. use the Web Platform Installer to install "Application Request Routing"
  3. restart IIS entirely
  4. create a file (if it doesn't already exist) named web.config and put it in the root of the directory serving your website
  5. modify web.config
    • add your prerender.cloud API token
    • hardcode the protocol in the url attr of the <action type="Rewrite" /> tag to be (http or https) for your site
