For a reason unknown to me I am not able to browse my default IIS website on Server 2003. I do have one website on there that I use. So, I created a test.htm file in the wwwroot and tried to browse to it localhost\test.htm and get page cannot be displayed from IE (from the server). The only thing I can think of is remove/restore IIS - -

What else could I do?

    Paste error code which it gives at bottom of I.E (Past as it is).

    and also any changes you have done on server.

    you can check event viewer also where in you see if there are any error/warnings

    I dont know what happened - I did BU/Remove/Install/Restore - Rebooted - Problem fixed

    I guess some corruption in IIS or something.
