I installed windows server 2003 R2 and then install IIS, when I check the default website And it stopped, nothing in event log, I can't start, when press start, nothing happen,

What should I do?

Update, I also uninstall and reinstall iis 6, and IISAdmin service start, but the default website stopped and won't start.

Is World Wide Web Publishing Started? Are there any error messages, when you try to start?

Anything in Event Logs?

One of windows hot fixes stopped that, because after I reinstall windows and install iis, work properly. Last time, First install windows hot fixes then install iis and that's problem –  user19049 Oct 12 '10 at 18:07
Glad to know that! –  Rahul Soni Oct 13 '10 at 13:42

Not sure if this is still unresolved. But have you checked the file permissions on the wwwroot folder, or which ever folder is the home directory?

Have you installed all the correct pre-req for IIS or all the components ? also have you checked any and all services related to IIS quickest way - organised via start up - automatic and have a look for ones which haven't started. Be aware there are one or two services that may not of started and you will get a info message stating this.
