Cannot access remote web workplace in Small Business Server 2008. When we browse it says "Internet Explorer cannot display this web page"

Dell server

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hmmm those look like pretty serious problems which suggest that the website actually doesn't exist properly.  Is this a fresh setup or has this problem just emerged from an otherwise fully working system?

OK - please could you tell me what has changed with the server (ie have any new applications been installed or has somebody had access to 'play'?).  It looks as though the website configured to serve the RWW in the Internet Services Manager has been removed or become corrupted somehow.

My suggestion would be, seeing that this installation is fairly small at present, to reinstall from fresh and restore any data from the most recent backups (which should be fairly small amounts due to the short life of the server thus far).

Regards,

Ady
