Hi
I'm in Sharepoint hell... please help!!

Something wasn't working, so I thought I stopped a service from within the Central Administration tool.... then I couldn't get in to the app again. I restarted the machine but no joy.

Then I realised that it's not in IIS 7 ....it's missing from application pools AND the sites branches.

I have working sharepoint site collections on there, and a full system state backup from a while ago which I'm loathe to restore.

Please, how can I get the central administration tool back??

Phew! After some messing about, and this didn't work first time... no idea why... I ran the Sharepoint Products Configuration Wizard and it restored JUST the central administration thing... :)

Just run products and technologies wizard and it will ask you if you want to recreate it.

Lol oops, took too long to type it up, haha.  

Well done!  
For future reference, most configuration changes that both your system can be set back to defaults by running the Wizard ;-)
