1- Try hitting the URL for your webserver from a browser -- if you can access the home page -- your webserver is on! 2- If you don't know what port your webserver is running on, try calling 'netstat -a' from the command line. It will give you a list of ports being used. look for something like :http or :80 3- Check the instructions for your particular web server to find out to start it... each work a bit differently. 4- Try titling your thread something relevant to the topic instead of "URGENT" try "URGENT: How to Start a WebServer?" that way when people are using our search utility, and come across your post, they'll have an idea what the thread is about.

Sanjeev, You have not mentioned the OS that you are using. Assuming that you are using Windows (standard 2k) you should go to the services to check what all services are running on your computer. There are many methods to go to services consold. 1.Start>Program>Administrative tools>services or 2.Start>run and type services.msc and press OK.
World wide Web Publishing Service is responisible for running web server (IIS) on your computer. Look at the status of this sevice. If it is not started, right click on the service and select start from the context menu. Hope it helps solve your URGENT problme.
