Hi guys hope you are well.

We are running an NT Server and are having issues with the www publishing service.
We cannot start it at all.
The message we are getting is:

"could not start the world wide web publishing service  on <server>
Error 0032: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."
Also, the Scheduled tasks are not running.

Any help greatly appreciated.

WWW not running

Run "netstat -b" in command prompt to give you a list of the processes and the port they are running on.  Look for the service that is running on port 80 (or 443 for https).

Once you have this you can work out whether it is used or not and if it is used move it to another port.

Scheduled tasks I cannot help you with.

Hi Wadski!

Thank you for your kind help.

We have tried your suggestion and nothing is running on that port.

NT is a total messup with IIS.

We are running the IIS that ships with the NT4 Option Pack.
