Reinstall IIS & Plesk?

    Sup all,

    Had some problems with the SP1 for 2003 windows
    So I had to uninstall it.
    Now all sites on Plesk are getting a Service Unavible.
    Tried some different ideas on here to get it to work but nothing helped.

    So I am left to have to reinstall IIS & Plesk.
    Am I going to lose all the sites or will Plesk now that they are there and readd them or just leave them alone on a reinstall?

    Thanks for your time,

    do a backup in plesk first before you reinstall everything.

    copy a working backup of the metabase.xml file from c:\windows\system32\inetserv\history (not sure of the path)..and replace the existing one in the inetserv directory. ..make usre you take a backup of the inetserv directory and run the command after cd to c:programfiles\swsoft\plesk\bin directory....the command is

    websrvmng --reconfigure-all
