'File Not Found' error on creating publishing site in sharepoint server 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to create a Publishing site in sharepoint server 2007 and getting 'File not Found' error.

    Everythings works correct till 'Set up groups for this site' (screen print below)

    once i click ok button, I'm getting below error screen:

    I'm not very sure if this has anything to with recent patch release but below patches were relesed recently on sharepoint servers:

    MS11-089, MS11-091, MS11-094

  • Can you please turn off custom errors in web.config, so that we can get more details about the error.

  • Can you check if the forms pages and applications pages are working fine ?

    like /_layouts/viewlsts.aspx and /pages/forms/allitems.aspx

    Do you have a custom master page applied for your site?

  • Application pages are working fine.

    I do not have custom master page for this site.

  • Open your site master page in some editor, and make sure all the files/controls which were referenced in this master page are accessible.

    Check the user control paths in the master page.

    src should be as shown below

    src="~/_controltemplates/<control>.ascx"

    ~ will be missing some times, make sure the control src path starts with '~'

  • just a thought cross check once whether the default page is available for the site definition and if site is creating and cross check once welcome page is properly setting or not.

    Go To -> site settings-> under look and feel section find the "welcome page" link

  • Please verify Pages library is created on this site or not. User <SiteURL>/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx  to check that
