IIS Error The specified password is invalid. Type a new password.

IIS-the-specified-password-is-invalid-type-a-new-passwordThe specified password is invalid. Type a new password.

You have two options here. The first one is quick and easy – set a password directly in %system32%\inetsrv\config\ApplicationHost.config file in clear text. For obvious reasons I don’t recommend do this in such a way:

The second option is to set a password using appcmd.exe:

  • Open elevated command prompt
  • Type:

This command will set the password and store it encrypted in the ApplicationHost.config file.

Good Luck!
