IIS Issue? Site not coming up all of a sudden

So I have a site setup on a server. It has been working for ever. All of a sudden it stops working. I tried going to it even by IP. It just says, "Under Construction..

Under Construction

The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured..."

I check to make sure it was pointing at the right virtual dir and that the default page was set in the documents list. The default page does exist in the dir too....

Nothing has been changed via code. Nothing has been altered on the server. I have a bunch of other sites running on the same server and they are all coming up. Just wondering if there was something that may have happened or overlooked. Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks a million.

500.19 error in IIS7 when an error occurs


IIS 6.0: what is the WMI equivalent of “Convert Folder To Application”?
Double check your bindings are set correctly.

Cannot open log for source {0} on Windows 2003 Server
Perhaps a new site was created which conflicts with the bindings of your site?.
Active Directory authentication for Non-Domain users
Edit .
Handlers returns 404 error on IIS7.5 integrated pipeline
Make sure .net is set to the right version.

.htpasswd under IIS - does it work?
I've seen where pages are not served up when the web is set to 1.1 on a 2.0 site..
Windows hosts file and IIS binding question
Also does the site work locally on the box? Have you ruled out firewall issues / changes or other network related elements..
Is it possible to manipulate a request before IIS assigns that request to a specific site?


It sounds like your request is being handled by another IIS site.

Make sure that the host header is set correctly..
. With your comment, the "Bad Request" error means that the default web site was handling the request.

There are a couple of things you can check:.
  1. If this is not the site that you expected to serve your app, then you still have a website identity issue.
  2. If your app is hosted on the default web site, then make sure that the default document is set correctly.
  3. Also make sure that you don't have a file named "app_offline.htm" in your app's root.


Well we rebooted the server and now it works again.

I guess I should have tried that in the first place.

It was just odd that all the otehr sites were working.

Anyway thanks for suggestions everyone..
