Quote:"Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"
Services that use the local system account to log on to a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer do not start. By default, services such as the following use the local system account to log on:
World Wide Web Publishing Service
Microsoft Windows Installer
Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation
First check services.msc to ensure that you have a working service called w3svc , if you don't ,it seems that your world wide web publishing service is not working or it missed from your server due to installation error , so to fix up go with one of the following solutions.
1- Reinstall iis using a different windows server 2003 media
2- Extract the world wide web service from a working iis server and import it in your server -which is unable to start iis and aaplication pool.(to do that: in the working server that you want to extarct the w3svc from it , open regedit , expand to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC , right click on w3svc and export to a file with .reg extension , copy this file to your target server , backup it's current registry , import the mentioned file above in the you target server , restart)
now you the working version of your w3svc strted at your services.msc consol.
Congratulations , you have a working application pool and iis server now
