In Win2k Pro you can choose where to place Inetpub in 'Personal Web Manager'. That does not exist in Win2k Server - how do you move Inetpub?

it is currently c:\Inetpub and I need to move it to d:\Inetpub.

How can I do this?..

Niico,

To move a Web site to another server, try this:
 
1. Copy the entire contents of the Web site to the new server location.
 
NOTE: Preserve the folder structure when you copy the Web site contents.
 
2. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
 
3. Select the following registry key:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters\VirtualRoots
 
4. On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
 
5. In the Export Registry File dialog box, click "Selected branch".
 
6. In the "File name" box, type "VirtualRoot" (without the quotation marks), and then click Save.
 
Note the location where the file VirtualRoot.reg is saved.
 
 
10. Now edit the registry for the new location.
 
11. You may have to reinstall any FrontPage extensions that you had to ensure that they function.
 
12. Double check the Web site's Internet Protocol (IP) address to the new server location.
