Something goes wrong with my iis.
I am running a local site, offline, on my hard disk.
My system is win xp, sp1, with kerio firewall and kaspersky antivirus.
I cannot access my site from any browser.
I hit http://localhost/
or many other alternatives.
Firefox says 'the connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost'.
IE, the first time displays all of index.asp except graphics! But if i do a refresh or hit a link, the 404 not found page displays.
Same things about opera.
I stop firewall, antivirus, I stopped their services, I tried again but nothing changed.
I checked iis default web site properties but everything seems ok as far as I know.
I checked the path for iis files (inetpub/wwwroot), it is ok.
I tried to uninstall .net framework 1.1 but it cannot be unistalled properly. I also tried safe mode but it says it cannot be uninstalled in safe mode.
I uninstalled iis and istall it again. This was very bad. After this action, the internet information services did not display iis version 5.1 but
something like 2.1xxxx. And I checked to see the 'default web site' and it was not there(in iis)! So I had to restore a ghost backup to have a
normal-looked iis again.
I also made scandisk to fix any errors(no bad sectors at all).
I also made an upgrade to win xp, to repair any missing windows files, if there was a problem like that.
I made all these thing, so many hours, much frustation, and no luck. Iis still not works properly.
I cannot imagine what is the problem. I cannot think any other thing to do.
I am not sure if this is a pure iis problem or if there is something else that influence iis.
Please help me, i would appreciate it if you could give me a solution to my problem.
