OWA fails after reinstalling Exchange and IIS

Insideview

We broke the IIS / Connection and had to reinstall both on an SBS2003 server, we followed the instuctions supplied by a previous question including reinstalling SP2 and updates.

Incoming and outgoing emails now working but OWA fails inside and outside, we get logon screen for user and password but then it goes to an error screen and on the page tab it says "Http 500 internal server error",
accessing it from inside gets a 405 error

Have been looking in default website in IIS but nothing obvious, can someone suggest where we should look please to get OWA running again, Thanks

Re-run the Connect to the internet wizard and change nothing (i.e., don't adjust any settings - choose the leave the settings as they are options - unless they are wrong), then test OWA once the wizard finishes.

Well done - wasn't aware that it was necessary to delete and re-create the virtual directories, but glad you got it working.

Happy New Year
