deleted wwwroot folder in IIS

Hello,

I installed Frontpage 2002 on an Exchange 2000 Server.  I created a website with Frontpage 2002.  But then I decided to start all over and creat a new website, but now when try to creat a new website in IIS the folder wwwroot is not listed  in IIS.  What can I do to retrieve the wwwroot flder without effecting anything from Exchange Server.

Help.

Hi,

Did you have something in the wwwroot folder before it is deleted?

How was the folder deleted?

hh,

Is this safe to do on this on an Exchange Server.  If I uninstall IIS wouldn't OWA and all it's subfolder be removed?  

As per your question, yes.  I created a website called Intranet within IIS, then created a DNS host record for the Intranet; then configured Frontpage to save all the html files to my IIS Server which is my Exchange Server.

To answer your question, once I deleted the website I created, it removed the wwwroot folder from the IIS Serever.  Hope this makes sense!

Hi,

If Exchange Server is working fine,  forget about wwwroot and create a folder for your webs.  

I think you deleted wwwroot by mistake when you deleted your web.

If Exchange Server is not working fine, and You can't create new webs using Frontpage,  then you will have to reinstall iis and exchange server.

I'll dig into this problem and come back to you.

If you are interested in having a wwwroot you will have to :

1- Use a retrieval program to retrieve the wwwroot folder that you deleted

or

1- Uninstall IIS and reinstall it  (if OWA gets corrupted,  set it up again,  it is only few steps)

or

Create a new virtual web using iis to replace wwwroot

Also,  if frontpage is creating webs with no problem keep doing that.
