Hi Stu -

1. Does the first already configured website use any ISAPI DLL file and if yes , Check if you configured in total website configuration ( Global IIS setting or for that individual website ?)

2. Does the new site you configured does use any ISAPI DLL ?

3. Enable ISAPI DLL in IIS .

Above URL is just for ref and not a solution.. Check if ISAPI is restircted or enabled for individual site also global IIS setting from root configuration page too.

Check from Global IIS configuration page and then move down to the website you said which is not working .
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

It is more likely seems IIS is unable to read web.config file due to conflict or improper formatted.

You can try moving everything from wwwroot folder to somewhere else and put simple HTML page to see.
