|Updated on||February 5, 2009|
All versions of IIS store their configuration in a special database called the metabase. The metabase is in some ways similar to the Windows Registry. Unlike the Windows Registry Editor IIS has no built in tools to view, change or track activity in the Metabase. The IIS Metabase Explorer allows you to view the hierarchical structure of the Metabase, edit the hierarchy or data values, copy or move data from one key to another, backup and restore the database and track changes made to the metabase by any application running on your system. The best thing about the IIS Metabase Explorer is that it is FREE.
