IIS 7.5 stopped working?
Posted on 2013-01-08
I've just resumed work on a website project from a few weeks ago on a Win7 machine which was all working fine at the time. However, I now cannot get any webpages using localhost or local ip address on machine itself or from another on the LAN. I get the std. 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' error. Using the diagnose option tells me the localhost website is online but not responding to connection attempts.
I've tried the obvious pc reboot as well as re-starting website in IIS to no avail. I've not changed anything knowingly since working on it last so at a bit of a loss. Searching for some time this afternoon has not give me any sound ideas and I can find nothing in log files either.
Any help would be much appreciated.
P.S. I've run MS Visual Studio and it previews the application fine using localhost on it's (random?) port.
