IIS unable to be connected using localhost(127.0.0.1)





shenyl
I have setup my Win2000 Server, and IIS. After installing VS.Net
something strange happen to by IIS.

I can no longer http://localhost/

Did a google, and found some help, but none of those from MSDN
help to solve the problem.

Finally found one that said

uninstall IIS
and delete \Windows\System32\inetsrv and \Windows\System32\Logfiles.
My is in \Winnt.

Then re-install IIS and all wnet back to normal again.

Of course I played safe by running the aspnet_iis -r.
This is found in the program folder for .NET framework.

Hope others who encounter this problem can try this out,
it save days of trying.

Problem noted is MS do not do a proper clean-up when you uninstall their products. The directories and content (the meta database) was not properly cleared.

I guess this is often because of their tight integration between products, resulting in their inability to deleted the so called shared components.

But something these shared component becomes corrupted, and you
need a fresh install of them, and you get these ugly problems.

Hope this is of help to someone out there.
