Sharepoint Migration Issue

2 1/2 weeks ago we migrated our Sharepoint site from a Windows Server 2003 32 bit to a Windows Server 2008 64 bit platform. MOSS 2007 SP2 32 bit migrated to the same version on new box. We have had several minor issues with alerts. but for the most part documents etc worked very well. Suddenly on Friday all of our MySites became inaccessible. I can still access the actual files using a manually entered address.
The developer who did the migration says it is because the CU released at end of August has not been applied.
I am not so sure.
The full error message is:

Found the problem - alternate access mapping. Restored webconfig.xml - all good. Still do not know how that happened!
There also appears to be a relation to our Alerts stopped working when we took the old Sharepoint site out of the Farm list. Email functions work definitely - tested.
Any thoughts?

If you can access the files directly, but not by going through the site, it's typically an issue with the master page on the site.  Either an invalid file reference has been made, or you don't have access to a particular file referenced in the master page.

I would ask what happend on Friday that lead to this?  Was the developer releasing something into the environment?

The developer was looking into the fact that Alerts were not going out since the migration and certain workflows were not functioning properly as well. He/they claim to have changed nothing.

Sidebar addendum - in applying the CU from August. Windows 2008 is x64 - MOSS 2007 is i386. He says to apply x64 version of update?

Justin SmithSr. System EngineerCommented:
No, apply the 32 bit to match your MOSS install.  You have to apply WSS and MOSS cu's, by the way.
