I have another sharepoint site that I have created.  When I type in the URL I get the login window.  But once I log in I get a connection closed message.  Here is what I get

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
Date: Mon, 07 Oct 2013 19:41:09 GMT
Connection: close

Can anyone tell why I am getting this message and how I can fix it, so I can access the site.  Thanks.

normally this is shown when no root site collection for this web app has been created.
Do you see any errors in the event log?
Did you create a root site collection after creating the web app?
Which SharePoint version and edition?

We have SharePoint 2010 Foundation running on a server SBS 2011.

Yes, I created a root site collection.  I thought I may have missed that also and when I tried to created a root site a second time it told me one was already there.

Detach the content DB and re attach.

Hope this may help.
