I created a new content database and then created a site collection. When I try and access that newly created site collection, I get 'The webpage cannot be found' page. I am able to create new site collections on existing content databases. Just having issues with newly created content dbs. When I go to /_layout/settings.aspx (or any other .aspx) I just get a blank page.

  • Went to 'view all site collections' and I do see that newly created site collection as well as the "/". – John Jun 30 '15 at 18:17
  • can you browse the root site collection? do you have issue only with the newly create site collection? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Jun 30 '15 at 18:23
  • newly created site collection on newly created content db. I can create a new site collection on an existing content database. I noticed this issue yesterday. – John Jun 30 '15 at 18:26
