    Re: IIS7 Error Message

    Hello Robin_X,

    The IIS7 is showing the above error because of applicationhost.config file is corrupted.

    When you check inside C:\Windows\system32\inetserv\config\ folder you noticed that applicationhost.config file size is 0 KB.

    IIS7 keeps the history of the applicationHost.config file every time when you made any changes in IIS7.

    To access the history of the applicationHost.config file, Follow the below steps.

    1. Navigate to C:\inetpub\history directory
    2. Inside this directory you will find the history of all the applicationHost.config file.
    3. Rename the original corrupted applicationHost.config file.
    4. Copy the latest applicationHost.config file that you know is not corrupted from history folder and paste it into the C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config directory
    5. Now attempt to access IIS7. This time IIS7 should open, and you should be able to access all your websites.

    Regards,
    Antonie J.
