Error for MOSS: App-Domain could not be created
Posted on 2009-05-13
I am trying to install MOSS on Windows Server 2003 (virtual machine). I have SharePoint installed, but when I try to go to the website for the SharePoint site, I get this message:
Server Application Unavailable
The web application you are attempting to access on this web server is currently
unavailable. Please hit the "Refresh" button in your web browser to retry your request.
Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure
can be found in the application event log of the web server. Please review this log entry
to discover what caused this error to occur.
The Application Event Log says:
Failed to execute request because the App-Domain could not be created.
Error: 0x80070005 Access is denied.
I am completely out of my element here (normally program), but have to get this working. I have searched other questions, and have tried the following, which resulted in the same error message pasted above:
1. Setting security for c:\inetpub\wwwroot so that IIS_WPG has full control
(this folder keeps getting set to Read-Only, is that a problem?)
2. Going into .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration, right-clicking on Runtime Security Policy,
and choosing "Reset All" to Reset All Policy Levels.
3. Restarting Internet Services on the server through IIS after completing the first 2 steps.
I can follow directions, I just need some Fisher-Price level directions, please.
