I've been searching the Internet for a way to remove a site from IIS7 using JavaScript. I've found, and used, a lot of examples on how to create a site and applications using JavaScript but not a single example on how to delete a site!

For example, I've figured out how to create a site using the examples found at http://www.iis.net/ConfigReference/system.applicationHost/sites.

Does anyone know how to remove a site from IIS7 using JavaScript?

Please help!

JavaScript is not meant to perform server side infrastructure operations - but if you insist on doing it you should wrap your operation (deleting the site using C#) in a web service exposed to JavaScript via static Page methods (assuming you are using asp.net) and throw in a ScriptManager to access your web service. That way you can access the functionality to remove the site via JavaScript.

Actually, if you follow the link in the question you'll see that Windows Server accepts JavaScript as scripting language. –  splattne Jun 8 '10 at 14:10
