Backup IIS

To make a complete backup of an IIS installation, do the following:

  • Back up all files served by IIS. This can be done any number of ways, either through the NTBACKUP utility or by simply copying out files by hand.
  • Open the IIS management console. Right click on the site being backed up in the left-hand pane and select Backup/Restore Configuration.
  • Click on Create Backup. Type a descriptive name for the Metabase backup you're about to make and click OK.
  • Open the folder Winnt/System32/Inetsrv/MetaBack. In that folder should be a file with the name you just provided and the extension .MD0.
  • Copy the .MDO file out and save it with your IIS backup.
