Where do the Windows XP IIS 5.0 configuration file stores?

Hello,

For a Windows XP, I have a backup (not image) of entire drive C: (just copy/paste of all folders and files).

The drive C: has been formatted and there was an IIS 5.0 with fifty virtual directories.

Can I get back these fifty virtual directories from my backup?
Which folder contains all  virtual directories? C:\windows\system32\Inetsrv?

I don't have any Registry backup.

My plan is to copy from my drive C: backup to a new Windows XP, and expect to load IIS with the fifty virtual directories.

Hi,
Folder c:\inetpub\wwwroot is not where information of virtual directory is sotred. It's the default folder for web applications code. But my web applicactions code is in drive D:.

Source http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302573 is not usefull to me, since I didn't make an IIS backup, I just copied/pasted entire drive C:. I hope information of virtual directory is stored somewhere in C: and not in Registry.

I tried to copy files from backup:

C:\windows\system32\Inetsrv

and paste to new Windows XP in same path: C:\windows\system32\Inetsrv

And also change name of new Windows XP PC as same as old Windows XP PC.

No success.

When I load IIS 5.0, it doesn't show any virtual directory.

If you only have a copy of C:\windows\system32\Inetsrv, then it's not possible to recover old IIS 5.0 in a new fresh Windows XP.

Maybe it's possible if you have a complete copy of C:\windows\. I haven't tried this.
