Im a developer with very limited knowledge of IIS7 administration. Today when attempting to open the IIS instance via the IIS admin GUI i received a message that reads (paraphrased):
"There was an error trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials. Error: applicationHost file is malformed xml" - Or similar.
Looking at applicationHost.config file I see that it is empty. Any ideas how I restore this file, or what I can add to it to restore it to its default state?
