ssl settings stuck in iis 5

Posted on 2004-04-16

I uninstalled a certificate  and changed settings back to work on just port 80.  I have restarted iis 3 times and then rebooted 1 time and when I go to pull up the page I still get a message stating that the page requires ssl.  There is no cert on this server, no 443 or 128 bit box checked.  This is consistent on the production system at work, the dev  system at work and 1 lab system here at home. Is there a specific amount of time to wait?

Just a qiuck (and possibly the dumbest) check is if you are accessing the site via http:// or https:// 
If no ssl, then use http:// 

im sure you've done that, but sometimes people miss it. I know i do.

I was keeping track at work and some of our changes would take 20 minutes.  This was after ripping out our hair over the fact that we were making constant changes not knowing about the delay and by the way we were stopping and restarting after all changes.

By the way I am capable of screwing up the http vs https but that's been ruled out.  Wish it was the case though!

I found out that the crypto store didn't have the proper settings on the acl.  I gave the system and administrator accounts Full Control (they had nothing before) and I was able to backup the private key and view pages.

We also found an FRS problem that we cleared up by excluding the SYSVOL folder from our anti virus program.  That cleared up other problems as well.

Page editor - I've found the resolution on my own.  I think the info given is useful and important but there are not points to be awarded.  Can I close this question somehow?
