IIS 6.0 Accidentally Disabled IUSER, now Default Web Site requires authentication
Posted on 2007-11-15
We have a Windows 2003 server that runs a default web site (a very simple one) on IIS 6.0. By accident, I disabled the IUSER account, and now, when anyone tries to connect to the website, it will give them the front page, but anything after that requires authentication. I have re-enabled the IUSER account, but this does not seem to have fixed it.
I've also gone into the default website properties, and unchecked/rechecked "Enable Anonymous Access" but I'm still not getting anywhere.
I'm not really very familiar with IIS, so I'm not really sure what to try next.
