Hi,

i am building a test websie and removed the default web site, is there anyway to add this back in. I did try uninstalling IIS 7 and then reinstalling and it did nit reappear.

Also inorder while testing the newly created website I am unable to get to the default.htm by the IE bowser using http, i can only get the test page up by opening the page from the browser and  browing to the directory not by the address bar using(example) htttp://test.company.com.

Thanks

All you need to do is recreate the site, name Default Web Site and point to c:\inetpub\wwwroot.   This at least will recreate the site.
