Win2k with all SPs & HotFix.
Ok, I really broke IIS this time (on the day the domain transferred to the new box. errrrrrrrr).
Here is what happened. I stopped iisadmin (and services) and copied over a new wwwroot/test directory. The contents were similar. This directory was set as the "home directory" for the IIS machine. After doing this and starting IIS, I got "Server Application Not Available" . Eventually, I removed IIS and reinstalled (a couple of times now).
I finally got the web server to serve HTML and ASP pages, but when I try an ASP.NET page, it breaks the IIS (can't even get a static HTML page afterward.).
After I reinstalled IIS the last time, I did the aspnet_regiis and regsvr32 the isapi dll (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=306005&product=aspnet
) but no help here. The asp.net page is simply a button that has response.write("It worked").
The last item in the App event log pertaining to IIS was the register of the the aspnet_ISAPI dll. I verified the aspnet user has access to the directory. The server worked fine during a four month testing cycle.
Any help greatly appreciated
