I had a subsite that was working fine.  Today when we tried to acess it came up with an http error.  I noticed that the url was missing /default.aspx at the end.  When I typed this in the page came up fine but it looked as if it had been changed back to the orginal template.

How can I change the page to where it is pointing to the default.aspx  for this site?

The first thing I would recommend trying is to check the log files.
c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\14\logs
Sort it by date and look at the log.  If you have a correlation ID then use that, but if not just poke around and see what is going on.  Look at your clock, browse to the page, and then close/open the logs in Notepad again to see what's going on.

Better yet, you can install ULS Viewer (http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer), which after someone here on E.E. explained to me, I have been using it ever since!!!

If you cannot find anything in the logs, you could always try to re-run products and technologies wizard, and see if that fixes the issue.  

In SharePoint 2010,  you can go to the specific site and change the site name, but I don't think this will solve what the problem is (just for reference: https://sharepointserver/sitecollection/subsite/_layouts/prjsetng.aspx).

You could also try resetting that site back to the site definition by adding "/_layouts/reghost.aspx" to the end of the url (so, https://mysharepointserver/sitecollection/brokensite/_layouts/reghost.aspx) and reset it.

Let me know if any of those work and we'll see what's going on.

Well I looked at the logs and it says that it is a HTTP 500 internal server error?  

Error:  Authentication 1.  [httpacchelper.cxx:657]  d:\office\source\search\native\gather\protocols\http\httpacchelper.cxx

Its weird because it is only one site doing this.  

I did manage to fix the menu in designer where it points to the right page however...if your in the site and click on the site name you will still be directed to the error page.
