Always it is a good idea to create a back up of the IIS before making any changes on the live web site IIS settings.


1. Open the command prompt as administrator.
2. go to directory %windir%\system32\inetsrv
3 Type appcmd.exe add backup "My Backup Name"
4. Press enter
4. Go to the inetsrv/backup directory and find the backup.
