I'm absolutely new to IIS and hardly know what I'm doing.
I've configured ODBC logging for our IIS server exactly following steps specified by Microsoft on this website: support.microsoft.com/kb/245243. When I started browsing on this site, nothing was logged into my database. So I went to event viewer and found an event of number 2271, described here.
First I restarted the W3SVC service as described there and after that I couldn't browse my website at all. When I turned the logging off in the properties of website in IIS Manager, everything came back to normal.
Then I proceeded to number 2 - verify if the website is started. Unluckily I found no appcmd app on my computer and nowhere to download it so I tried to check it in IIS Manager. Following Microsoft's steps I found my website's details but there was nothing in the column "Status". In the column "State" kit was "Started", but status was empty. Does it mean that website was not started? Or did Microsoft mean State, not Status? How can I make it work, what can be the problem? I will greatly appreciate help as I'm stuck and it's my first day at work.
