OWA stopped working after SPoint 3 Crawler "fix"

We were having the 2424 and 2436 errors every 5 minutes in the logs of a relatively new SBS 2008 box. I used this URL to attempt a fix: http://mysharepointblog.com/post/2007/01/Windows-SharePoint-Services-(WSS)-30-Search-Setup-Notes.aspx

Now my OWA and RWW are inaccesible and I can't seem to get them back. Can someone please tell me how to revers what I did, as the webpage that offers a fix doesn't have a repair for the fix!

Now I get the following errors in the logs:

Also, it is imprtant to note here that I have not deleted anything. I have only chaged a configuration of SharePoint and its links to the websites. http://companyweb still works fine and Exchange is still working. It is only the OWA and RWW that have stopped, probably because I got the fix wrong for the crwaler errors.

Any SharePoint gurus out there?

Hi,

Does the OWA and RWW working internally?

What is the error you getting while browsing OWA and RWW?

- Check Default Web Site and it should run on ports 80 and 443.

- Rerun the Connect to Internet Wizard once.

Hope this helps,
Shree

Hi Shree,

We are way, way beyond this, I'm afraid. We eneded up having to call PSS who fixed it by the following:

Resolution :
=================
# To resolve the issue, We re-Installed Rollup 9 for Exchange 2007 over the top to correct any wrong permissions on Virtual Directories of IIS "

# The SBS web applications website has been extended as a SharePoint site

# web.config was all modified..with entries for SharePoint

# We corrected the Web.config file

# Rebooted he server

# Able to browse OWA and Remote now

# Issue Resolved
