Fresh SP2007 Install on Windows 2003, get 404 error for Central Administrator
Hi Folks, I am very new to Sharepoint (and Server 2003). Installed Sharepoint Server 2007 on a 64 bit machine over Windows Server 2003. This is a standalone install (No Server Farm). After "Sharepoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard" succesfully completes, I am unable to get to the Central Administration page (or any page). I get the error page: "HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found. Internet Information Services (IIS)" . I am unable to see any of the web pages in the Webroot directory and am stumped. Here are some screen shots: IIS Manger: Port 80 Page: Port 20090 Page: Central Administrator Page: Application Pools: Web Extensions: Web Services: Thank You in advance for any help you give, Eric

Thank You so much for your reply !! I have tried internally and externally to access the Central administrator at: http://DEVELOPMENT: 15249/, which is basically port 15249 of the localhost. I have restarted IIS and verified that the web services is running for Central administrator(and all the S.P. sites). Before installing sharepoint, I could access the default site via http://localhost, after install, no access. Is a standalone install, so no worries about user account between database and sharepoint (no server farm). Internet explorer has these URL's as Trusted Sites (shouldn't matter, as I.E. can't even find the sites). How do I access the Application log and ULS logs to see the errors? Thanks, Eric

For the benifit of others viewing this thread in the future... It ended up being a combination of a corrupt install and automatic updates screwing up user account settings. I did a fresh install of Windows and Sharepoint and can now access everything. Thank You for the help, Eric
