Creating a second Web Application - MOSS 2007

  Date: Sep 17    Category: MOSS    Views: 867

I am at a loss on this one. I've got a portal up and running with no problems. I
now need to create another web application and go through the steps to do so.
After creating the application and then the second step of creating the site
collection, all appears to complete with no problems. I go to the newly created
URL and no web page shows up at all. I get the dreaded "Internet Explorer
cannot display the webpage" error.

I've gone through and made sure the correct db's were created and are
operational...and they are. The new site appears in the correct SharedServices
and SharedServices is functioning properly (if it didn't my initially created
portal site would not operate).

What am I missing? Anyone have a clue where to look to trouble shoot this
problem. I've gone through the IIS logs and found no errors; went into the 12
folder and found no error's there either.

Do you have Friendly Error Messages turned off in IE? What kind of "can't
display" is this -- the 404 kind or the "missing server" kind?

Are you trying to hit the site from the server, or from another client
machine? If the former, is LoopbackCheck disabled? If the latter, does the
client have access to the server on the correct port?

Are both Web Applications on Port 80? If they are then you need to have
either pre-created the web sites in IIS to use different IP addresses (not
likely) or created them using host headers. Otherwise IIS won't know which
web site to access when you hit the server on Port 80.

If you did use host headers, then you also need to enter the host header
that you used in to the DNS server. Otherwise you won't be able to find the
web site and will get the error you are describing.

Finally, if you used a different port number then you need to add the port
number to the URL when you try to access the site.
