HTTP/1.1 404 sharepoint site


I have created a new site. When I open the site using the URL the browser gives this "HTTP/1.1 404 sharepoint site".

HTTP/1.1 404
Connection: close
Date: Tue, 01 Feb 2011 15:44:05 GMT
Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET

Solution :

  •  The most probably reason is you haven’t create the Top-Level site collection.
  • SPS will not create the Top-Level site collection for you by default. To create the Top-Level site collection, goto Central Administration > Application Management > Create Site Collection.
