I just migrated from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 foundations. I installed SharePoint on server and used a separate SQL server. I did get some errors during upgrade due to webparts/assemblies/features being missing but I don't think this is causing the error.

I can't get to the default homepage, I get the error below. I can get to other sub-sites or other sections of the main site. I have tried using SharePoint designer to look at the page but it won't work either.

I looked at the log file for the correlation ID but it doesn't have any other helpful data.

The file or folder name contains characters that are not permitted.  Please use a different name.

  • Not sure, SharePoint is not my strength. That blog post doesn't say how to check the file or where its located, do you know?

I ended up deleting the default.aspx page and created another one.
