How do I make a web site start up automatically in IIS?

Hi, I'd like my web site in IIS to go from "Stopped" to "running" when I restart the server.  I know there is an easy way to do this but I can't remember how?

IIS 7?  They should start automatically.  Double check within IIS, highlight your site and choose Advanced Settings on the right hand menu.  There is a field called "Start Automatically"

Look in the services Applet of Control Panel (under Advanced)..  Look at the properties of Internet Information Services and be sure that it is set to Automatic..

Thanks,

Sorry, IIS 6.0

Ach1lles, this is exactly what I am looking for but I can't find it in IIS 6.  Is there no corresponding setting in IIS 6 that would do the same thing?

It's a metabase setting, you will need the metabase explorer in the IIS resource kit to modify it.  But honestly, it shouuld be set correctly by default.

I'll see if the sites start next time I restart IIS or the server.  Thanks.

Thanks, you are right, I think I just wasn't waiting long enough for them to start, or not refreshing or something .  :)
