IIS 5 Save Config


Where is the 'Save Configuration To Disk' option in IIS 5? In IIS6 it works a treat, but I cannot locate this in the IIS 5 manager at all.

Cheers.

No, I want to commit the changes I have made in IIS Manager to the metabase on disk. We have an issue whereby a change in IIS is lost when the server is restarted, so I figured trying to force it to save the metabase settings to disk using this option would be a good idea... but the option only seems to be in IIS 6 and above.

Thanks anyway.

In IIS 5.1 and earlier the management user interface is called IIS snap-in and it runs in a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) window. To force the in-memory metabase to be written to disk, use the Backup/Restore Configuration option.

And you think that would save the changes I've made after a restart of the server?

Yeah sure .... "Backup/Restore Configuration option" is taking backup's and restoration when needed.... so that would be a solution..
