    How to backup/restore IIS7 configuration in windows server?

    IIS 7 automatically makes history snapshots of ApplicationHost.config each time a change is detected. By default, IIS checks for a new version every 2 minutes and will keep 10 prior versions of the file. IIS7 stores these snapshots in the %systemdrive%\inetpub\history folder by default.

    You can change any of these settings by editing the <system.applicationHost/configHistory> section in ApplicationHost.config.

    In order to backup IIS configuration, you will have to just run the following command:

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe add backup "Backup-Name"

    In order to restore IIS config file backup, run this command:

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe restore backup "Backup-Name"

    To get list of backups and configuration history files, run following command:

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe list backup
