SharePoint - Creating a Team  Site through Central Administration

Last Modified: 2015-07-07

I am creating a team site through Central Administration --> Create site collections option and I am not able to access that site after it is created and I am the SharePoint Administrator.  I cannot even seem to access the main SharePoint site that has been created.  When I try to access the main SharePoint site (SharePoint 80 or http://psprazsps01) I get a HTTP 404 Not Found error.  When I try to access the team site I created (http://psprazsps01/sites/pspbrainstorm) I get an Access Required page, complete the page, submit it, accept it through the email request sent via SharePoint, as administrator I get the request and accept it, and the web site comes back saying 'Sorry, this list hasn't been shared with you'.  Yet I am a SharePoint Administrator.  We are using Active Directory as well.

What am I missing in trying to connect to our SharePoint Site?
