Remove nested includes

Check if a server-side include file has included itself

    <!-- #include file = "myInclude.inc" -->

  2. Remove or replace any #include directive that includes itself.

Check if maximum depth of server-side includes has been exceeded

To check if maximum depth of server-side includes has been exceeded:

  1. Review server-side include files to ensure that no server-side include file exceeds the maximum depth of server-side includes.
  2. Remove any #include directives that exceed the maximum depth.

Verify

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

  1. Open an elevated Command Prompt window. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. Type sc query w3svc, and press ENTER. The World Wide Web Publishing service is running if the state reported for the service is 4 RUNNING.
