Hello experts,
I have a knowledge base on my website that I have done is ASP. I had some file permission problems as well as some code problems when I was getting it all up and running. I have sorted through all of those problems and now have my KB Database working, (Thanks to b0lsc0tt and nschafer). These guys are wizzards on ASP. Since that time of getting my KB working I can no longer log onto OWA, I keep getting an error 405. It is as follows;

The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) was used to attempt access.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Contact the Web site administrator if you believe that this request should be allowed.
Make sure that the Web site address displayed in the address bar of your browser is spelled and formatted correctly.
HTTP Error 405 - The HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technical Information (for support personnel)

Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 405.
Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled Setting Application Mappings, Securing Your Site with Web Site Permissions, and About Custom Error Messages.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Did the run any of the security tools - URLSCAN etc on that server?
That can cause those sorts of problems.

Would help if you posted the version of Exchange as well.

Simon, sorry for the delayed response. I have not run any security tools at all. All I had done was change some permissions on a few folders. I was having some trouble with my ASP code and some of it was Permission related, seems fixing 1 problem has caused many. I am running version 6.5 SP2 on exchange. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks

If you have been resetting permissions then you have probably changed something that Exchange requires.
I would suggest that you reset the Exchange virtual folders first.

If that fixes OWA but breaks something else on the server, then you need to look at what is wrong with the other application. You cannot change OWA to work with your application, your application must be changed to work with OWA.
