SharePoint Server 2010 Site Suddenly Dissapeared - 404 Error

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I created a site in a brand new SharePoint Server 2010 environment.  Now when I browse to the site, I get a 404 error.  The site has suddenly vanished. The link to the site still remains in SharePoint, but it's not there!  I tried running the SP Prod and Tech Config Wizard, rebooting, etc...

No one is even using this environment.

Any ideas?

Did anyone at Microsoft test SharePoint Server or Project Server before launch?  This 2010 release is so full of bugs.  Sorry to rant.

Create a Site template with subsites in Sharepoint Server 2010

Hi, I'm with my first SharePoint project, and we are using server 2010 as a Document Management system. The thing is our company has about 300 customers, and we have to create 300 site collections, 1 per customer.  For each site collection, I use the blank site template, and it's very simple page, as I just need a document library in the home page, and then I need to create a subsite called "cases" and the inside profiles, the users create a document library for each case. For subsite I mean, I create a new site and I choose the option to share the top menu, so basically the site has 2 tabs. So basically what I need is a template that has 2 tabs, Home and Cases. Home with a document library in home and Cases empty. Is there a simple way to achieve this? I guess maybe I have to edit some XML files to create a Site Template. If this is the case, can someone point me to the right documentation. Second, I need to create a Visual Basic project so that the final user has a form, and he just inputs the Customer Name and the code must automatically create a new site with the template I metioned before. I guess that once I have the template this won't be very hard to achieve, as I have seen this SPSite class. The question is, can I have the template with the 2 tabs, o maybe I have to use 2 templates, and write code to create the home site and the Cases Subsite.. Ple

SharePoint 2010 Site Actions Site Settings Error

I can not seem to go to Site Settings for a sub site in SharePoint 2010.  I installed SharePoint 2010 developer version on my laptop (Win 7 64bit) with Visual Studio 2010.  Try to create a sub site and go to Site Settings and bam!!! Error File Not Found.  This is frustrating.  Very frustrating.  I found so many problem with SharePoint 2010 and get no where with this version upgrade.  My life is completely ____ now.  Thanks Microsoft!  Why! Why! and Why do you not test your software and make people life much more convenience.  Why roll out this crapy software now on MSDN instead of making it clear that it is not ready??????????  WHY!!!!!! Yes, and I try to go to Site Settings from within SharePoint 2010 Designer.  It took me to the same error!!!!!  So what is going on?

Purpose of initial "site" in SharePoint Server 2010 Express Install

I’m installing Search Server 2010 Express using “Farm” mode. After the SharePoint Configuration Wizard completes, and selecting  the SharePoint config wizard, one needs to create a website. What is that site intended for? Is it for the Search Center itself? (If so, then I better select the Enterprise – “Basic Search Center" template. If it is intended for a "normal" top level site, then I will create a new Search site in its own web app). TIA, Barkingdog

After Installing SharePoint Foundation 2010, trying to open site gives 404 error in browser


I had this as reply on a thread about migrating from WSS 3.0 to SFS 2010. But I have completed all the steps with the modified documentation, but the browser delivers an error 404 when I try to open the site I created.  Same thing happens if I go at it via https, but first I get a certificate warning error (using the IP instead of the FQDN) and then being prompted for credentials.

I am completely stumped at what else to look at.  Any help in gathering information to get help is also appreciated.

Environment:  SBS 2008, SFS 2010, SQL Express 2008.  Rest of the IIS sites continue to function normally and I can get to the management site ok.  Although after the install, I had to go into application pool and change the service account from the domain admin (it defaulted to that) to networkservice account, otherwise I got a 503.  Same thing happened on the site I created until I changed the service account.  Now just a 404.

Session State throws error in ASP.NET Site Pages for SharePoint 2010 portal using Visual Studio 2010


I'm developing Visual Studio 2010 solution for site pages. I’ve created Site Pages in SharePoint 2010 and I’m trying to access Session variables in code behind in ASP.NET but it throws the following error.

Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive.

Trying to recreate Help Desk site in SharePoint 2010 fails with an error

I looked up the GUID using http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mcsnoiwb/archive/2010/01/07/features-and-their-guid-s-in-sp2010.aspx as my reference.  However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add this feature to the site collection.  When I go to the top-level site and go to add site collection features Web Analytics Customize Reports functionality is not there.

Clearly there is something I'm missing but since Microsoft is not redoing the Fabulous 40 site templates, any help in getting the old sites to work in a sharepoint database attach migration will be greatly appreciated.

Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office comp

I am encountering this error during setup. The server previously had WSS 3.0 and the Group Board Workspace. I uninstalled those and installed sharepoint foundation 2010. Initially It was up and running but I was receiving errors trying to load the group space template, so I uninstalled SPF2010. cleaned up the registry pointers to the old WSS3.0 and Groupboard Workspace and tried to reinstall. Now I get the error

Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office components failed to complete successfully.

Looking into the issue it appears that setup cannot install the embedded sql server, since the logs indicate a dbwrap error. There are no "pendingfilerename" operations which fixed this problem for some. I tried to install as a farm but it won't allow me to use a local admin account.  I also looked at the sql configurations and the windows internal database is running.

Any ideas how to I can remove the windows internal database and reinstall SF2010?

SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit



I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

Can I back up a site from SharePoint 2010 server and restore it on a SharePoint 2010 Foundation serv



I had a simple site in a SharePoint 2010 server, and I backed it up. That server is not available anymore, and all I have available is a SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. Can I restore on that server? I got an error message saying that the versions of "SharePoint Foundation" on the two servers are different. Note that only one of the servers (the destination server) was running SharePoint Foundation, the other one had full SharePoint 2010.

I don't think I am using any features that are not part of SharePoint Foundation... it's an extremely simple site. Just a list with custom list forms edited in SharePoint Designer.

Sharepoint 2010 - Error while running Configuration wizard for SP 2010 server farm

Hi All,

I am trying to set up a SP 2010 farm. I have windows server 2008 R2 installed and was able to install SP 2010 successfully. However when I ran the Sp 2010 Products and configuration wizard I am getting the following error at Step 3.

 Failed to create the configuration database.
An exception of type System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException was thrown.  Additional exception information: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
   at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException()
   at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)

I have installed all the prerequisites and I am on Microsoft Geneva Framework 1.0.30624.0 . I saw on a blog that Microsoft Geneve Framework beta 2 will actually cause the above problem. However I encountered the error with Beta 1 version as well.

Any ideas why this is happening?

SharePoint Server 2010 October Cumulative Update My site Problem


Hi everyone

I have created a small farm with a default installation. I have 2 web application configured using Claims authentication.

The first web application is hosting a site called http://sharepoint.domain.com running a standard team site.
The second web application is hosting a site called http://my.sharepoint.domain.com and is running the Mysite.

When I install the October cumulative update the My Site links vanish and the My site is no longer accessible showing a sharepoint Access Denied page.

Has anyone else experience this? Do you know how to fix it?
