SharePoint Foundation

I am trying to get up to speed with SharePoint foundation.  I have created some sites, the admin site opens without any problem, but it is the only one.  All the other sites I have created have said they are created when I finish them, but when I enter their URL  into a browser I get a 404 error.  We use SBS Server 2011 and the SharePoint Foundation that came with the server.  We have not used the SharePoint before and I am trying to get it up and running.  Any help or information will be appreciated.

Hi Bill,

Assuming that you can see the sites from within central admin and IIS and they are running, can you check that the bindings within iis are what you would expect. You may need to use localhost depending on your setup.

You are correct and leading me in the right path, but it still is not working.

Here is what I have.
I only had type - http and Port - 80 to start off with and added the following

Type    Host Name                            Port  IP Address    Binding
http      fbcw-srv01                            80      *
http      start                                       80      *
http     80       *

I still have listed
http                                                      80

which is what I started with.

But I still cannot connect when typing in fbcw-srv01 or start or into my browser.

Hi Bill,

If you go to http://localhost on the server can you see the sharepoint site, that would tell us if it is simply a dns/binding issue or if the site itself is not running.

Kind regards,

Thank you.  I had other problems once I fixed the binding but that was the major problem and let me notice and fix the other problems.  I am up and running now so again thank you.
