Central Admin (and all other sites) 404 error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a MOSS 2007 installation on Windows Server 2008, all 64-bit.  I still have this setup in test phase but there has been a lot of work put into it and was near ready to start receiving content when this happened.  There is one externally facing site collection using port 443 forwarded through our router and mapped through DNS, as well as the default websites and the central administration site.  The only sites being used are the one on 443 and central admin.  Both sites were working and accessible as of yesterday but now they are not.  Directly before the sites became inaccessible two things happened, so I'm not sure which is the cause.  First, updates were installed, and secondly a blank IIS site was created on port 443 as a test, then was deleted out of IIS manager.  Attempts to log into Central Administration now bring up a 404 error although it does take the credentials and Explorer reports "Website found. Waiting for reply." Attempts to access an externally facing site do the same, the web page displays the message to accept the server certificate as well as the logon dialog box, but then it simply times out and brings up a 404 error.  A number of errors have also been reported in event viewer over the past 24 hours: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------The description for Event ID 27745 from source Windows Share

SharePoint 2007 Central Admin - blank page, isapimodule error in IIS


I've got a Windows 2008 SP2 server runing x64.

When i try to access the SharePoint Central Admin site, I just get a blank page. No errors in the Windows logs, nothing showing up in the SharePoint logs. The IIS log shows a 500 error.

I enabled Failed Request Tracing for the 500 status code, which gives me the following information:

HttpReason Internal Server Error

HttpSubStatus 0

ErrorCode 2147942593

The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' error on 2nd SharePoint server in farm

We just added a 2nd SP2007 server to mirror our site.  The original site is in China, the new site in the US.  They are connected via a permanent  site to site VPN.  We are hitting the errors when attempting to upload files to the US mirror.    Environment: US server site: OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (64 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (64 bit) China site: OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (32 bit) Background: We setup two test Sharepoint farm to be syncronized with only its content database. The upload works good on SZ site. But we got the following 2 error messages randomly when uploading file to document library of SF side. Error message: 1. The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' is invalid.  It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web. 2. Cannot open file "ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg". -- We've tried the official hotfix, altering the schema, changing the IIS memory limit settings, and restarting the application pool. Could the issue be related to the different OSes 2008 vs 2003, or 32 vs 64bit?  

Web Application list in Central Admin in 2007

Can somebody tell me where Central Admin pulls the data for: Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application List   Somehow, the name for one of my applications has changed, but the URL has remained the same.  The website content itself, the website in IIS, and the content database name all still appear to be intact and nothing has changed there.  Everything seems to be fine, I just happened to notice that the NAME of this one web application has changed and it's really bothering me that it could possibly be pointing to the wrong data.  HELP please!

Cannot login to Sharepoint 2010 central admin

Hi Guys, I am relatively new to MOSS and have started investigating the product. I had MOSS 2010 fully funtioning in a test environment and had an issue with authentication. Each time a user accessed the site for the time, they would be prompted for a username and password. I then came across an article that indicated i should enable Kerberos authentication in Central Admin. I did this but once the configuration completed i could no longer access Central admin. The normal site sites are available and functioning. What could the issue be? thank you,

Central Admin Site got replaced with another site

Hi, My Central admin site got replaced by some other site. I guess someone had restored their site on the central admin site. Is there anyway I can bring back my Central Admin Site? If I run the Sharepoint Configuration Wizard, will it fix it? Thanks,

Backup through Central Admin fails; works using stsadm

Hi, I'm trying to schedule automatic backups of my SharePoint 2007 site.  I wrote a .vbs script that does the backup with the following line:   objShell.Run "cmd /c stsadm.exe -o backup -directory """ & BACKUP_DIR & SITE_DIR & """ -backupmethod full -item ""Farm\Windows SharePoint Services Web Application\SharePoint - SharePointSites"" > """ & CURR_DIR & "log.txt""", 0, True   I ran the vbs script from the command line and everything worked fine.  I used the Windows Task schedule to run the script as a scheduled task.  The script ran fine and the backup completed successfully (according to the logs), but now if I go to the Central Admin page and try to do a restore, I get the error:   The backup/restore job failed. In order to rerun the backup/restore the timer job must be deleted from the Timer Job Definitions page. Failure Message: Backup or restore is already running.   The odd thing is I can do another backup or restore using stsadm at the command line and it works fine.  I can also run the scheduled task to do another backup and that works fine too.  I just can't do any backups or restores from Cetnral Admin anymore.   Any suugestions or ideas? Thanks. -Cynthia

Reinstall Central Administration without destroying sites?

Hello, I've been having a problem for awhile now where I cannot get the Configure Service Accounts under Security to work. Something I want to try is to remove/reinstall central administration. The problem is, Central Administration is running on the same server as the SharePoint sites. I want to remove/reinstall central administration without removing Sites. If I use the SharePoint Product Configuration wizard to remove and reinstall central administration, will it touch/destroy the sites? Thanks.Owner, Quilnet Solutions
