Unable to access WSS Web Application (HTTP 403 / HTTP 404)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a WSS Web Application that has been up and running without issue for several months.  The only problem that I've had is the inability to use SharePoint Designer since my site uses Forms Authentication.

Unable to create a web application- website http 404 not found


I am trying to create a sharepoint web application and site collection. But when a site collection is created, it says the site is successfully created but when I navigate to that site its giving me this error: http 404 not found.

When I see in the IIS, the virtual directory structure is not created properly. It just contains 4 folders, (control temp, layouts, _vti_bin, _wpresources). Dono why its not creating all the folders!

Does anyone know why this is happening? I am using the farm administrator account for creating the web app. Is it something related to the IIS settings?

Advanced thanks for the help.

Is it possible to access an Analysis Server with Excel via http?

Hi, in our scenario we want to give another company access to out analysis server via web, their front end should be Excel. So first of all I made a setup like descriped here http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/cc917711(en-us).aspx (but I have really no idea how to test it in an easy way because using MDX sample application ends up every time in "The connection either timed out or was lost.") But apart of that, is it possible to access an analysis server with Excel via http? I did not found any possibility to use a http-adresse in Excel as server path. Any ideas?

Report Access over HTTP and HTTPS


We have a strange issue with our sharepoint server in that when accessing the sharepoint site through http reports work, when accessing through https, reports dont work.  I am not a sharepoint expert by any means but have been tasked with fixing the problem.  here is what  I have observed:

Scenario 1

When accessing sharepoint via http://FQDN_of_Site I am taken to the login page to login.  Once authenticated, the client portal (non-secure, http) is displayed and I have the option to run several reports.  Clicking the report link displays the report as expected.

Scenario 2

When accessing sharepoint via https://FQDN_of_Site I an taken to the login page to login.  Once authenticated, the client portal (secure, https) is dispalyed and I have the option to run several reports.  Clicking the report link results in the following error:

The item 'https://FQDN_of_Site/Reports/Report_Name.rdl' cannot be found. (rsItemNotFound)

The server does have a vaild SSL cert.

There are three serveres being used.  One server for SQL, One Server for Sharepoint, One Server for Reports

As a recap:

http://FQDN_of_Site/Client_Name/ReportList.aspx works
https://FQDN_of_Site/Client_Name/ReportList.aspx does not work

Unable to access CLR module from MFC application


Hello All,

    We have a legacy MFC application I am trying to add WPF controls inside an MFC application. I couldn't get the main application to compile with /clr option. So, I added new dll (WPFHost) and compiled it with /clr option. I have another class library with WPF controls that I am trying to invoke from WPFHost dll. The main application linked correctly to the WPFHost dll but when I try to invoke code from the main application, it throws a debug assertion and crashes.The main problem here is it doesn't even hit the constructor of the class that I am trying to invoke inside the WPFHost dll. When I tried to keep a break point, it doesn't let me do it. Visual Studio says that this breakpoint will not be hit.

I am pretty new to this MFC and WPF interop and am not sure what else I should be doing to make this work. Any suggestions and pointers are greatly appreciated.


Thanks a lot,




Session lost when access MVC website by hostname likes http://mypcname/ using IE


Hi experts,

I'm learning asp.net mvc 2, it's very excting with me.

I has built a small MVC2 application, it is working fine in built it ASP.net Development Server. However, there're something wrong when have it deployed in IIS 7.5, Window Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. Session is awlays null when I access the application by IE and use hostname to specify the url.

Using IE (IE 7 or IE8) to access my application with link http://localhost/ or http://<my ip address>/     => every working fine

But when I use IE (IE 7 or IE8) to access my application with link http:/hostname/    => session always null

I'm supprised while FireFox working fine in all cases, both of built in ASP.net Development Server and IIS server, both cases hostname and ip and localhost.

I really appreciate your advise!
