Manual change in applicationHost.config not appear in IIS 7 UI

If you are manually changing your IIS7 metadata file "applicationHost.config" located in \System32\inetsrv\config and the changes does not show up in IIS 7 user interface, do this.

1. Copy applicationHost.config for config folder to a temp folder i.e. your desktop.

2. Do your changes on the desktop copy.

3. Overwrite the desktop copy back to config folder copy.

4. Open IIS and you will see your changes.


Same logic applies to IIS6 and its metadata file.
