Summary

Internet Information Services (IIS) Web sites that use HTTP rely on several important IIS components for their availability. The Windows Process Activation Service (WAS), the World Wide Publishing Service (W3SVC), the HTTP service, all must be running correctly. In addition, a properly running application pool must be available for the Web site’s applications. If any of these components is not functioning, the Web site will not be available.

Resolutions

Stop and restart WAS

Stopping the WAS service will also stop the World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC) and any other services that depend on WAS. Thus, you may also have to start these other services.

To stop and restart WAS:

  • Open an elevated Command Prompt window. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  • At the command prompt, type net stop was /y.

  • At the command prompt, type net start was.

  • To restart W3SVC, from the command prompt, type net start w3svc. Also, start any other services that were stopped when WAS was shut down.
