I have IIS running on Server 2003.  I have about 6 different websites...  3 are Wordpress.  Up until yesterday everything ran fine...  NOW I'm getting the following symptoms.

1.  Some or ALL of the Wordpress sites stop working.. FF says 'the connection timed out' IE says.. 'cannot display the webpage'.  As I'm typing this.. 2 of the 3 wordpress sites are working.. the 3rd... won't display.  Neither the front end or the admin.
2.  All non-wordpress sites continue to run (and some use PHP)
3.  Restarting the server does nothing.
4.  Yesterday the '3rd' wordpress site wouldn't respond for over an hour then just starting working... right now it's been down for 30 minutes already.

On the server, I don't see any errors.  I really have no idea how to troubleshoot this.  This is ap roduction server so I'm sorta panicking!

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Lance

Did you try turning debug mode on?

The problem ended up being DNS related.

I figured out the problem was DNS related, and not related to IIS at all.
