Fix IIS 7 Physical Path issue

The MS Website Panel application has rendered my iis7.5 install useless by changing physical paths from the E drive and rebadging them with the default C:\inetpub\wwwroot.

Where and how do I fix this, registry IIS.

I have uninstalled the Website Panel (aka MS Virus, almost worse than norton stuff.)

new web apps display the correct path in iis but when you run them it defaults back to the original.

The server is 2008R2 with Sp1.

I have deleted the website, recreated it and tried to run it from the root vs an application.

Irt is only affecting this site which was imported into website panel when it was installed. All other apps and app pools are fine.

There are also 2 registry entries in regedit related to the default WWW path, which were possible to edit, but no change. These were pointing towards inetpub on the sysdrv

we have done an iisreset and are going for a reboot 10

I would use the graphical Configuration Editor to explore the IIS metabase and simply correct the incorect paths.

I have modified the following setting but get an invalid app path message.

Does this look like the right spot?

I have noticed some default c:\inetpub\.. paths to log and history but none to the websites yet.

There are at least another 500 options in this 1% of IIS7.

that last round of changes and the reboot must have fixed something.

Thankyou for your time Richard.
