I have created a public SharePoint 2010 site called http://xyz.com and when I browse to it I see the following;

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 Date: Wed, 18 May 2011 16:42:23 GMT Connection: close

I have set up a site for forms authentication at http://xyz.com/marketing and when I browse to this URL I see the forms auth login page.

Why do I get this error above?

  • Are you set up with Server Roles for the Administrator with options like dbcreator, public, securityadmin or sysadmin? May 18, 2011 at 17:20
  • Do you have a site collection at that top level?

Sounds like you are missing a site collie tion at the root of the site. Verify by viewing all sites from Central Admin and see if it lists a site at '/'
