I receiving the following error when I Try to view my web site on my Azure win 2012 server.  Note, I have one site running, and it works fine, and I am using the same IP for both. But I can't get the second one running.

I have done the following:
Given read, write permissions to the directory and  IIS_IUSER  and Network services.
set the headers and application pool and set the ports to 80.

The file are in the directory but will not show.  I have a simple index.html file but still get 404

Thanks for any help in advance.
