[TYPO3-english] [TYPO3-windows] No thumbnails in BE

Hi Andreas,

Like you I am positive on the fact that the problem source is in realurl
config in Windows environment (IIS or Apache does not make any difference I
suppose). It is not solved at all, because I haven't installed it yet but I
will need it in production ! So I am very interested if you find a clue on
that topic. I will keep you posted when I will install realurl extension on
my new 4.2.10... Pretty sure it will kill my BE thumbs again...

Thanks for your help


For info my .htaccess :
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/typo3$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^/typo3/.*$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l
RewriteRule .* /index.php
DirectoryIndex index.php

My Realurl_conf.php :

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXTCONF']['realurl']=array (
'_DEFAULT' => array(
    'init' =>   array (
      'enableCHashCache' => true,

Hello David,

Even if you have solved the problem I would like to give some feedback for
the guys looking for solutions in future - in the meantime I am pretty sure
that URL Rewrite is causing the problem. When I disable RealUrl in the
Typoscript configuration and the IIS7 URL Rewriting Feature I get the Icons.
I Strongly believe that my Rewrite Rules are incorrect. But the logic for
the rules are different using IIS7 URL Rewrite Feature then when using

The ruleset for Typo3 that I have found during research
(http://wiki.typo3.org/index.php/Iis7) does not work:

               <clear />
               <rule name="T3 Static Files & Dirs" stopProcessing="true">
)$" />
               <rule name="T3 Static Files & Dirs (Child requests)"
)/.*$" />
               <rule name="Rewrite Rule & Condition">
                   <match url="(.*)" />
                   <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />
                       <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile"
negate="true" />
                       <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}"
matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />

If anyone is running Typo3 using IIS7 and URL Rewrite (My version is v2.0
RC2) - and gets the Backend Icons - please be so kind and post your ruleset
from web.config.

Thanks Andreas! For information, I have installed a clean 4.2.10 in same
environment (apache not IIS for me, I had too much trouble with it) but
without any extensions (including realurl), thumbnails are working fine so
far. As long as I will add extensions, I will test BE thumbnail step by step
(not easy to debug this thing)...

Hi David

I am experiencing the same problem... Using Windows Server 2008 / IIS7 /
MySQL 5.2 / PHP 5.2.11 

Php_imagick will not help because its not used by typo3 (unless you changed
the typo3 sources to make them do so *ggg*)

I have been through a lot of research and configuration. As errors are not
displayed, I currently believe the problem is associated with the
configuration of IIS7 and URL Rewrite (Note: I am not using ISAPI_Rewrite).
Also, there are a couple of settings in the install tool related with image
processing in BE. Possibly the problem is related to misconfiguration of
these settings playing together... I am using ImageMagick 6.5.7-7.

As soon as I have a solution I will come back to you. But its - oh - so

It happens something weird on my instance.

I cannot make thumbnail working in my BE on my 4.2.6. It is just an empty

All images are working fine in FE/RTE and installation image tests are all
perfect, all folder/binaries permissions are OK.

I have tested with latest IM or GM, different values in localconf etc but
with no result. 


Server is Windows 2003/Apache 2/MySql 4.1/PHP 5.2.9 with php_imagick
extension loaded.


Thumbnail link seems to be fine :

<img height="35" width="56" title="TS7on Windows7 3" alt="TS7on Windows7 3"


Editing thumbs.php does not seem to be very helpful.


Any idea guys to debug this?


Thanks for your expertise
