IIS windows 2003 server deleted or uninstalled accidently
Posted on 2014-04-09
On our test web 2003 server, the IIS server was accidently removed and I've been trying to reinstall it (no sys admins here)
For each web site under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot) I don't have the WebSharing tab that the production server has.
I do have the following folder,
but no IIS Server Manager. Web sites are down.
I tried reinstalling it 2 ways,
The first way is using Manage Your Server / Add or remove a role / select Application server (IIS,.. /
sometimes I get a "Files needed" message looking for 'appsrv.msc' and I'll tried getting it off the CD_ROM or search for this file in the servicepack directory. Both times it fails.
The message I consitently get is,
The Configure Your Server Wizard cannot finish setting up this server as an application server bc IIS could not be installed."
The log states,
"Configurations for an Application Server
IIS could not be installed on this server.
To install IIS, try running the Configure Your Server Wizard again, or use Add or Remove Programs."
The second way is through the Add or Remove Programs utility / Add Remove Windows Components.
This method looks like it works since I don't get any error messages but there in nothing installed.
I also tried downloading IIS 6.0 for Windows 2003 server but I don't see that as an option.
Not sure where to go from here.
