    Hi.
    I've accidently changed the windows username of Plesk Default Application Pool on IIS Application Pool Settings on Identity Tab. I was thinking that i was editing properties of another my custom application pool.
    And now i can not add the old user name "IWAM_plesk(default)" for Plesk Default Pool to fix this. Because it requires the correct password for that user. What is the password of that "IWAM_plesk(default)" windows account or how can i find it?? I didn't want to change its password from Control Panel because maybe the password is being used by Plesk Panel on some settings..
    Please support??

    you can reset the password for the iwam account from the computer management and give the same password under
    the application pool properties.

    Set it to be what ever you like - it will accept it.
    Then go into the metabase and change the Auth string to be the same as another working site, iisreset /restart and your good.

    I would suggest reading up the subject from Microsoft. Here is a very basic overview of the metabase
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/240941

    After that if you still need general answers to questions like that I would refer you to google.

    Hi Omar,

    Could you elaborate on what you mean? I dont think Plesk 8.x for windows is compatible with PPA, and Im not sure what IIS password you are referring to. If you are using local accounts you would do it through the user manager in windows - you can use one of the resources listed here
