Hi Experts,

I have recently installed share point 2013 in a test environment and i am just having an abundant amount of issues getting a team site for centralised storage going.

I am currently following the TechNet article regarding setting up my sites, but i get to a point where I cannot access a certain point. I try to access the User Profile Service Application and all i get is "sorry something has gone wrong"

I found something in the event logs as bellow.

We are running a Server 2012 Std, with SQL 2012 running the database. It has 8GB of RAM and a Quad Core CPU with a couple of 7200RPM drives - (this is just a test server)

Would appreciate any feedback.

I noticed the URL is listed as localhost which will cause lots of problems with security because Windows server often blocks it as it can be a huge vulnerability

I highly recommend using valid fully qualified DNS names for even test installations.  For example testsp13.yourdomain.com

Hi TedBilly,

How do I change this, just create a new sharepoint site or is there further configuration required?

I've fixed a similar issue with the PowerShell at the bottom of this blog.

Also, verify firewall isn't the issue.

The link ACH1LLES provided is excellent and I've used that strategy even with a SharePoint installation that uses fully qualified domain names.

Sadly, once localhost is burned into the installation it's impossible to remove for key components.  If it's a test installation, I'd reinstall.
