Accidentally Deleted IIS Serving SPS3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,


    We have a virtual server running SPS v3, which connects to a separate SQL server for content storage.  The IIS (default web site) site on the virtual server was accidentally deleted, so now instead of serving up SP pages, you get a "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)" message, which makes sense.


    The SPS Central Administration 3 page is still functioning properly (its IIS site did not get deleted).  Except for the Central Admin, there are no other existing Web Applications, which prevents me from Extending the Web Application to another IIS site


    I tried recreating an IIS site, but have not had any success.


    Any suggestions on a way to get recreate an IIS site and connect to the existing databases?


    Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.

  • Create a new web application like you would normally, (just make sure to specify the same information you had within the previous web application).  Then within the Application Management tab, click on Content databases.  Click on Add content database, and then specify your existing SQL database with your specific content.  (Optionally, delete the database that was created as part of your new web application creation).  You should be able to access the site like normal now.
