Orchard CMS Resource Not Found

I have a website running on Windows 2k8 and SQL Server 2008 Standard, using the Orchard CMS system.

This website has been functioning correctly until 1 day ago when i recieved a call from someone to say the website was in accessible.

Checking the website says that:
The resource cannot be found.
Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested URL: /cms

No changes have been made to the server, configuration etc of the server.  The users may have change some of the content in the CMS system.

Im now at a loss as to how to get this website back up and running?

I can post results of any investigations you would like me to do. I have rebooted the server, deleted and re-created the application pool running in ASP v.4 framework but still the resource cannot be found.

The file system has not changed so there shouldnt be any core files missing to get this to work

Something changed.  Perhaps your web.config file has error, and URL Rewriting is no longer working, assuming you are using URL Rewrite in IIS.

Eventually found out what this was...

cache.dat under app_data for some reason had no permissions on the file, reset the permissions and all working ok now!

thanks for your help
