Q

Web site errors abound after Win2k server upgrade

After an upgrade of Win2k server to be a domain server, my Web site shows multiple errors: Page cannot be displayed, server application error, etc.

It has many ASP pages that worked fine before this change. When I try to reinstall Internet Information Server...

(IIS), it gives me an error code 0x5, which is "Access denied." I am logging in as administrator but still have the same problem. Thanks for your help.

This is a security configuration problem. Domain controllers have different users and groups than stand-alone servers. Reset permissions for files, databases and service accounts (including the IIS user account), and everything should work well.
