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.
