My all IIS applications on virtual dedicated server are messed up and giving error:
Service Unavailable.

What happened was that I had no ASP.NET tab on the properties of my applications and I followed the advice on many threads which said I should remove the Enable32bitAppOnWin64=TRUE" line from the C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\MetaBase.xml file.

After I did that and reset my IIS, all of the apps were giving me this "Service Unavailable" error. Then I tried to return this line to the file though after returning it I get the same error on all my sites.

How I can resolve this ASAP??

I run Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition, IIS6
