A Sharepoint Site Collection was restored on a fresh installation of sharepoint foundation on a server. Upon restoring the 22GB back up file, I am not able to see the restored site
collection sites/abc I get a 404 - Webpage can not be found I checked the content database an there is a good 21 GB in there. There is nothing else but this site collection in this instance of sharepoint. What could be the problem? The usage logs for the time when the restoration was running was 0KB. The STSADM restoration command executed over a couple of hours with no hitches. Event log viewer had "Distributed Cache service is not enabled in this server", so I went and enabled it. What am I missing? Desperately need help.
