Hi Fabio,

PHP is the right stack to use for this on Linux. However, it uses Apache instead of IIS, so a web.config file won't work.

Instead, create a .htaccess file in /home/site/wwwroot like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule "^[^\.]+$" "index.html"

It rewrites any path that doesn't contain a . to the index page, which should work for most single page apps deployed this way. If your app is different, you may have to tweak this somewhat.

Many thanks Anthony,
I've changed to Windows instead of Linux and it works. Have a nice day.
