HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found

TonyJK 876 Reputation points


We just set up a new IIS Server on a Windows 2016 Server and with a DigiCert SSL Certificate. The Web Server is a Workgroup Server and not domain member.

We get response for both Host Name and Server Name
"HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found".

Is there any suggestion ?

    Hi @TonyJK ,

    Can you explain the relationship between servername and and what them are?

    According to my understanding, servername is IP of server and is the host name of site on server. Is it right?

    If so, did you add "" in hosts file of windows server? You also need to add ""( is the IP of windows server) in hosts file of client machine.

    If not, check log of site to see if server receive the request. If it received the request, check the substatus code and refer to this docs. You will know what cause 404.
