One web site will not start in IIS. The others work. This one starts and then stops. How can I troubleshoot this? Windows Standard R2 2003.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First place to look would be in the event logs to see if there are any entries related to the stopping of that web site instance. If there is nothing there, you may consider upping the verbosity of the logs for the web services for a limited period to allow you to troubleshoot the problem. A place that is unlikely to give any hints, but just might would be to look at the web logs that normally just record the conversations IIS has with outside sources coming in.

As has been mentioned, check and double-check your configuration to ensure the site is properly configured.

If you are placing this site under the default site, move it out to its own site at the same level as the default site, or to another server running IIS.

    hmm maybe compare the settings between the sites that work and the one that doesn't to see if there are any differences in connection settings. Or see if you can get it to create an error log and see what that says. What Version of IIS are you running?
