  • Question

  • Hi All ,

    below are the steps i followed and encountered an error .

    1.press on activate button in front of sharepoint server publishing feature in site setting -->site features

    2. A page with error comes (File not found ) it must be custom error

    the site was under some site collection whose sharepoint publishing feature was not activated before .

    now when i try to open any page under _layouts its giving error File not found .

    no page is opening like list of all views , site setting etc.. only pages which dont involve _layout in url are opening

    i dont have rights to central admin but have sharepoint designer 2007 .

    kindly guide me how to restore website links again (all links under _layouts )

    Thanks in advance !

  • Hi,

    >(File not found

    there may be a  problem with your alternate access mapping. Just modify the AAM settings (set with server name and server IP).


    Also you need to check the log file in 12 hive to get more information about this error.

    Let us know your result
