I installed IIS fresh yesterday on my dev box and at the time it was working perfectly. I rebooted this morning and now I can't debug my websites in Visual Studio because the web server doesn't respond. I've tried viewing sites in inetmgr too, but it never expands the Sites item in the tree view.
I've installed the following components:
Internet Information Services Web Management Tools IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility IIS Management Console IIS Management Scripts and Tools World Wide Web Services Application Development Features .NET Extensibility ASP ASP.NET CGI ISAPI Extensions ISAPI Filters Server Side Includes Common HTTP Features Default Document Directory Browsing HTTP Errors HTTP Redirection Static Content WebDAV Publishing ............... Not sure I need this one Performance Features Dynamic Content Compression Security Request Filtering
I'm at a loss as to what the problem could be. In all the time it's taken me to write this post, IIS has been trying to expand the Sites list in the management console. It hasn't changed at all.
Any help would be appreciated.
