I am trying to start my website in IIS, whenever I try to start my website I get the following error
Cannot start service w3svc on computer
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start
The World Wide Web Publishing Service service depends on the HTTP service which failed to start because of the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
Well finally after a week struggle, I came to a solution. I am listing down the steps which I followed to solve my error:
Confirm that "Windows Management Instrumentation" is started and its start up type is set to
Also make sure the following dependency services are started for World Wide Web Publishing Service:
Open regedit, navigate to
a) Double click on
Start and change value data from
"NoRun" key if this key exists.
UN-install "Internet information Service" and "Windows process activation service(if it is already installed)" from "Turn windows feature on or off" and Restart your PC.
Type the below command in CMD and press enter:
net start http
Now it will notify you that service is already running.
Re-install Internet information Service from "Turn windows feature on or off".
Start IIS and my websites are started now, no more "w3svc service is not running error."
