GeorgeGerguesCommented:
go to central administration.

- > Application management
 List of applications

Do you see your application ?

If yes
    Go  to site collections and see if you have a default site collection for that application you have.
If No

You do not have an application this means you have deleted your application .


Best of luck.

[1] are you trying to connect at

 http://axia-ShareP ?

or are you trying http://localhost 


[2] are you able to ping that name from your client and server and do they get the same IP.?

[3] Under application management - do you see an alternative access mappings other that that name ?
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
I am connecting through the servers internal IP address (10.1.3.10)

Do I need to map this in alternative access mappings?
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
well even localhost is not working
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
you should browse using this url
 http://axia-ShareP
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
even with that url it comes up with 404 error and even in the server itself when I use localhost same issue
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
looks like you don't have any alterntive access mappings

Or they might have been deleted


Under application management ( by default ) you should have
 http://axia-ShareP
under the application
if that does not exist , add it .

GeorgeGerguesCommented:

then re add it  at the AAM

ridha121Author Commented:
hmmm I am trying to delete it but where exactly is the option for this?

0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
select it and delete it .
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
sorry for not mentioning , but the delete option is greyed out
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
you can try to change the default AAM to somthing else .
like 8080

also see if your IIS application has that port set correctly ,and make sure there isn't any host header

ridha121Author Commented:
I have deleted the default SharePoint - 80 app

and then readded it mapping it to the IIS website created during server installtion.

I have also checked bindings in IIS to verified that it iis binding to port 80.

I now get the message below when I go to the default site

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
Date: Mon, 21 Mar 2011 17:47:00 GMT
Connection: close

GeorgeGerguesCommented:
what is the SharePoint - 80 app ?
is that inside the SharePoint or on IIS ?
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
its in the IIS it is what was created automatically when installing sharepoint sever 2010
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
why delete it ?
that is your application ...

0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
Do you have any other applications on the IIS server

at least you should have the Central Administration .


can you confirm that you are still able to get to http://axia-sharep:18760
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
Hi there

I can still use Central Administration fine.

On IIS I have

1) SharePoint - 80 (I didnt delete this from IIS I deleted the app in Central Admin)
2) SharePoint Central Administration v4
3) Share Point Web Services

I only deleted the web app in central administration but I choose to keep the IIS website (shown in screenshot)

I have also put a screenshot of the IIS sites.

So after doing that when I now go to the site on port 80 it asks for user credentials and when I login I get the following error

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
Date: Tue, 22 Mar 2011 12:37:59 GMT
Connection: close

GeorgeGerguesCommented:
The default is your application , why would you delete your SharePoint application .
I was under the assumption you wanted it , (hence this whole discussion thread )
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
I didnt delete the sharepoint application I only deleted and then readded it to see if it would work after that.

I have aadded it back but I get that error now
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
can you go to Central admin
manage applications

You should see the same list of applications

Can you list the applications you have (a screen shot would be nice)
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
Heres the list of applications

Applications
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
Can you post a list of the Applications on your IIS server

It looks like the application still exists in SP  but missing in IIS.

we are getting close.

ridha121Author Commented:
Sorry to keep troubling you.

Heres the screenshot of sites in IIS.

Could it be related to connected to the WSS database? because if you look at the ohter screenshot ive added it shows 0 connections I do remember this being 2?

 IIS SItes
 DB Connections

GeorgeGerguesCommented:
Very interesting

Did you ever have a site collection created
if you have not created one already  ( and that shows under Site collection count of 0)

you might want to create a new site collection

Under site collections , simply create new site collection , and pick a template
that should be the default site collection. on port 80


following site collections can be under /Sites/Sc1 , /Sites/Sc2 etc...


Best of luck

ridha121Author Commented:
I did create a site collection, I think it must of been after creating this that it stoppped working?
0
 
GeorgeGerguesCommented:
are you saying you have or or do not have a site collection ?

can you send a screen shot of the site collection lists
0
 
ridha121Author Commented:
Ok under application Management.

I clicked on create site collection then chose the template and chose teh site on port 80 and now it works taking me to the team site homepage.

I think this was my problem.

Thank you so much for your help for it has led me to this, I am still a newbie with sharepoint
