    Before using any of the above commands, back up your IIS configuration. You may lose your data if IIS is terminated before the services have stopped normally.

    As a security measure you can backup IIS through the following steps .
    open IIS manager , right click on local computer => All tasks =>
    Backup /Restore Configuration => Create backup and give the configuration
    backup name . The backup is stored at the following location
