My website stopped functioning when I installed Microsoft Exchange on a machine that already has Windows 2008 server.

I need to keep my website working after I install Microsoft Exchange on IIS sew server. How can I do that?

Maggie, your problem here can easily be solved.

What you need to do is confirm that the Ms Exchange software is well installed and has the required keys in the registry.

This you can do by; opening the registry by opening Start > Run > regedit (typed)

In the registry window, open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSmallBusinessServerExchangeE12SP2READY

Add the extra registry key

Ms Exchange software is well installed and has the required keys in the registry

Go to the temp folder and delete all the files in that folder.

Go to the temp folder and delete all the files in that folder.

If you reinstall/restart  the software, your problem needs to have been solved.

I hope this solves your error.

Thanks.

Hi Maggie,

It seems that the Microsoft Exchange is not installed properly onto your computer.

Try re-installing the program.

Once you have removed the software from your computer, clear all the files from the ‘temporary files’ folder.

This can be done by typing ‘%temp%’ in the ‘run’ command.

Restart your computer and then install the Microsoft exchange once again onto your computer.

This would fix the issue on your computer.

Hello Holmes,

This can happened because MS Exchange server and IIS server are co-depended. MS Exchange configuration can interfere in IIS server so it is quite possible that the domain name of your website has changed. First of all check the Metadata by using Metaedit in IIS server. If the metadata is corrupt than drop that but of course keep backup.

Now IIS virtual directories are normally stable, but the directories could be damaged and you have to drop that. This directory would not recreate itself. So you have to re-configure the IIS server and the virtual directory. Before re-configuring this directory, configure the MS Exchange. Now recreate the virtual directories and the problem would be solved.

Thank you,

Riley Weaver.
