In my production server when I am hitting the url ".../sites/en/Pages" I get an 401 error access denied error. Though I have all the permission in Pages library. Now in my staging server which is identical to production when I hit the url ".../sites/en/Pages" I get redirected to ".../sites/en/Pages/default.aspx" and the home page opens fine. I would like to know from where this redirecting or configuration changes is happening which append default.aspx in the URL in staging. What is there in my staging site which I required to do in my production server?

Environment: SharePoint 2007

Thanks.

Another way to set home page

Site Actions -> Site Settings ->Welcome Page

This works only if Publishing feature is enabled.

  • I know how to make a page as default..thing is it is already made as default, still when i hit URL en/sites/pages it gives me access denied error, while in staging i get redirected to Default.aspx . I would like to know why it is not getting redirected in production. – Ankit Kumar May 31 '16 at 14:08
  • Access denied means it's a permission issue. What all webparts you have on that page? – Amal Hashim May 31 '16 at 14:10
  • This access denied is not SharePoint access denied error. Its 401 error. There are many webparts on the page – Ankit Kumar May 31 '16 at 14:13
  • And this is what i get in developer tool in Network tab in Response body: <html dir="ltr"> <HEAD> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" name="CharsetDefinition"> </HEAD><body ID=idErr><p><H2>Access denied.</H2></p> <p>You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.</p> <!-- commentElt Access denied. --></body></html> – Ankit Kumar May 31 '16 at 14:42

You can open the Default.aspx page in your browser or in SPD to make it work as home page.

From Browser

Open the page Default.aspx in browser, & from the ribbon you can click on the button called "Make Home Page".

From SharePoint Designer

Open pages library for specific site, Right click on Default.aspx & make it as home page.

Result

Above things helps you to make Default Page as landing page for your site.

If still it not works than you can follow the instruction mentioned in below link.
