Sharepoint 2013 Apps

I am trying to configure my Sharepoint 2013 farm to host apps.  Specifically, I'm trying to get some Microsoft Access functionality.  It's turned out to be quite a pain.  I've manged to configure my SQL installation with the needed features, configure service applications via Powershell, and configure DNS and catalog URLs.  I'm at the point now to where when I add an app to a site, I receive a preview of the app with the text "We're adding your app".  It has been stuck on this screen for about 2 days now.  I am a site administrator and have checked the app requests portion of Central Management.  There are no pending requests.  How do I figure out where to go from here?

Hi,

Have you verified that the user account that is performing this procedure is a member of the site Owners group.

Yes, the account I'm using is a site owner.  It is one of the two that are defined as part of the site collection creation wizard.  I think the wizard refers to them as "Administrators" and Powershell refers to them as "Owners".

I looked through the logs and there appears to be a continuous loop of events that center around getting a health score of 0 from the Access database server.  The process consists of about 20-30 events, but is in a never-ending loop.  I couldn't find any troubleshooting help for the events I saw on Google.  There were no errors; just informational messages in a loop.

So, i managed to completely crash my farm somehow.  After a complete rebuild, I've gotten a little farther on the whole Access App thing.  Now, when I create a web database in Access, I immediately see a successfully created app on the Site Contents page on my Sharepoint site.  I also see a new database in SQL that looks great.  HOwever, i get the "This program cannot display the webpage in Access" and I get the 404 error in my web browser when the redirect to my app domain occurs.  I'm guessing I now have DNS issues.  For the record, my Sharepoint site is https://, not http://.  So, any ideas on where to go from here?

I ended up rebuilding the environment a third time.  This time it worked.
