Exchange 2007 OWA down.

We bought a SSL and SAN cert for Exchange 2007 server, imported it successfully but noticed there seems to be a new website create "server.company.lan". This website was deleted and now it seem our Windows 2208 Server IIS does not seem to be working anymore i.e.

http://127.0.0.1 shows up error "the webpage cannot be found".
Stopping and restarting IIS, the Default website - still same error msg.

Replacing a test index.htm in wwwroot e.g. "Hello World", still same error (had stop and restart IIS in Services).

It seems IIS web publishing services is corrupted? Any suggestions?

instead of 127.0.0.1 have you tried putting in the servername?

Hi, resolved the problem. It was a combination of several errors that was confusing.
- Long DNS TTL causing more short term solutions to be tested.
- HTTP forwarding for user friendly that was not configured properly
- default website http bindings not setup properly
- http redirect not setup properly
