Last Modified: 2015-05-27
Hey all, we have our company website which we host internally using Win2k8 and IIS7, not sure why but we are unable to access our website internally or externally, getting a '403 forbidden - access denied' error, but are able to get to it in Https

Not sure why this is happening and I am not very familiar with IIS, can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Look at your properties and make sure port 80 is set, and not just 443. Sounds like port 80 got removed from the sites config, or someone checked to force SSL.

Hi,

You can check binding settings using with below steps;

open IIS manager -> Right Click on your website - Edit Binding settings. There you can see binding information.
