How to purge IIS6 metabase
Posted on 2009-02-24
I have a website (a virtual directory on a IIS6 web server) which a programmer (who is no longer employed) set to use an account other then IUSR_Servername for anonymous access. We want to reset the directory security to use the proper account (again, the IUSR_Servername), but when we do, it asks the password, which we don't have. We have tried backing up the site, deleting the virtual directory, and recreating it, however when we recreate it, it populated the user automatically and still asks for the password. We need to keep the virtual directory name the same, as the URL is out there, so how can we purge the cached (I assume) metabase info so we can use the correct user? Note: When we create a new virtual directory, with a different name, it uses the correct account and prepopulates the password...
