  • WWW Publishing service stuck stopping

    I've tried searching on google and here but havent really found a solution, other than restart server. Trouble is, i need to restart the IIS service quite regular so this is becoming a bit of a pain that I need to restart the server a couple times a day!

    So yeah, are there any other solutions to forcing a service to quit? WWW Publishing service just stays Stopping and wont actually stop, so I cant stop IIS!

    you can kill a process with for example: taskkill /IM notepad.exe
    however, Isn't it better to find out why you need to restart IIS that often?

    Also this command can be used.
    Taskkill /F /FI "SERVICES eq <Service_name>"

      I know why I need to restart IIS, it is a deveolpment server and I am testing out all sorts of things and have to restore MSSQL databases and various other things that need IIS to be off while I am doing it. It's not a permanent thing, just while something is in development.

      thanks for the info tho, I'll try that out next time it happens

        Ahh ok..
        I thought it was a live webserver

        anyway, with taskkill you can force to kill the process.

          hmm... taskkill doesnt seem to want to work either, it says

          INFO: No tasks running with the specified criteria

          Syntax I am using is:

          Taskkill /F /FI "SERVICES eq World Wide Web Publishing Service"

          Any ideas?

            I tried it with the messenger service and that worked.

            Try: Taskkill /F /FI "SERVICES eq w3svc"

              well, that kinda worked. It ended that service, but the World Wide Web Publishing Service still says started within the Services MMC
