Enabling the WWW Service

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

When you upgrade a Web server running Windows 2000 Server and IIS 5.0, the World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW service) is disabled unless, before upgrading, you elected to run the IIS Lockdown Tool or make the appropriate changes to the registry. However, if you did not choose either of those methods, you must now enable the WWW service.

If you are upgrading a Web server that is currently running Windows NT Server 4.0 and IIS 4.0, the WWW service is not disabled. Therefore, you can continue to the next step in the deployment process.
