I am running Opencart V3.0.3.3 on windows server at IONOS.

I have been following the "Basic Security Practices" document but have come stuck on .htaccess and .htpassword. I have renamed .htaccess as recommended, but from what I can see none of the commands are being followed. Is this a Windows issue?

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Why on earth would you want to run OpenCart on a Windows IIS server? You should ask your webhost to switch over to a Linux server, see e.g. https://www.ionos.co.uk/hosting/linux-hosting

@Straitlight: all what you (and OpenCart) is doing, point to those few line about // Windows IIS Compatibility
Nothing about web.config, rewriterules, etc.
Beside the fact, running a Website in a MS IIS is useless - and more the security ..

That is because web.config and rewriterules are beyond the scope of Opencart out-of-the-box.
