IIS Webserver Goes Down

By BorgInva ·
I am running a website on XPSP2, IIS v5.1 (the latest as far as all the updates are concerned). Lately, it keeps going down for some reason. Stopping it and restarting it does nothing. I have to reboot the PC to get the website back up.
Any ideas?

it might be that too many users are trying to access the website at once... currently microsoft only allows 10 concurrent connections to an XP box. It would probably be a lot better if you create a linux web server, you can run it on the older boxes and it doesnt cost a thing... Fedora is my choice.

Not going to learn Linux to create a webserber, but your answer on those 10 connections let me to my resolution.

and this info

The IIS included with Windows XP Pro is shipped out of the box with a 10 concurrent connections limit. This can be increased to 40 or so. Just download and install the IIS MetaEdit utility, load it up, and change the LM/W3SVC/MaxConnections entry's data to 40.

So far, it is working.

If this was working fine and now it does not, the problem is most likely something running on the system (like spyware/malware), or a bad script on the pages/system. Best bet is to check the event viewer for details, get a list of running processes, and undo any web tweaks/functions that were added recently. Maybe even a system restore to before the problem happened.
It could be anything from a bad device driver, corrupt file, bad script, spyware, or your site was hacked.

Sorry, not in this case, and never are viruses or spyware ever an issue for me. I am too protected.

I also recomand you a Linux box for a server. Debian stable version is my favorite for servers.
