SharePoint Designer 404 error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a SharePoint 2010 Farm and suddenly I am unable to open sites in SharePoint Designer. Please note that this has started to occur since last some days only.

    Whenever I try to access the sites, I get following error

    404 - File or directory not found.
            Server Error   404 - File or directory not found. The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    What could be the issue ? Please note I am able to access all the sites when I try to access them through browser. 

    Thanks, Tejas

  • Hi,

    I understand that you cannot open the site in SharePoint designer. How do you access the site? Using internal URL or external URL?

    Make sure that you are accessing the site using internal URL. If this doesn’t fix this issue, you can repair SharePoint designer 2010 and Office 2010. Then restart the server to check whether it fixes this issue.
