I have just installed a new Windows Server 2012 essentials server and cannot get clients connected via the http://
<server-name>/connect. I receive a 404 error.
On the server under IIS manager the default site will not start giving the message "This website cannot be started. Another website may be using the same port" see attachment
This error makes no sense as this is a new server and there are no new apps to listening on port 80. I've checked the bindings and the only two entries are port 80 and port 443 for https.
One the SERVER MANAGER there are errors under the IIS EVENTS which are "1007 - Error - Microsoft Windows-IIS-W3SVC"
The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW Service) did not register the URL prefix http://*:80/
for site 1. The necessary network binding may already be in use. The site has been disabled. The data field contains the error number.
As I said this is a new server on its own domain with no other applications loaded.
Help most appreciated.
