I have got some web application and the search works well and good for those web applications.its a Sharepoint 2013 The web application has been added to the content source "Local SharePoint sites" I created another new web application and i can't get to search.Anytime I do a search i get the error in the ULS log

The start address "" cannot be crawled. Context: Application 'Search_Service_Application',

when i go to the site and do search i get error and also when i try and activate any feature:

An error occurred while processing the request on the server. The status code returned from the server was: 0

Any ideas what to check and what to test?

Thanks in Advance

  • After you created the web application did you provision a top level site collection? There needs to be content present and a site for the crawler to work. – Matthew McDermott Nov 26 '13 at 13:29

Have you given the search crawler account read access through a User Policy on the new web application? (Compare the User Policies on your two web applications)

This is crucial in order to for the crawler to be able to index all content in the web application.

  • Do you have the ability to restart the server? Seems one of the services on it might be down? – Robert Lindgren Nov 26 '13 at 7:07
