Application error upon visiting any site on my local server

IIS 10.0.22492.1000
Windows 11 Pro Insiders 22494.1000

Whenever I visit my site on my local IIS server, I get a 503 error. After doing some digging, I discovered that I was getting application errors all over the place,
#Software: Microsoft HTTP API 2.0
#Version: 1.0
#Date: 2021-11-05 15:07:09
#Fields: date time c-ip c-port s-ip s-port cs-version cs-method cs-uri streamid streamid_ex sc-status s-siteid s-reason s-queuename transport fault-code
2021-11-05 15:07:09 ::1%0 59310 ::1%0 80 HTTP/1.1 GET /favicon.ico - - 503 1 AppOffline test TCP -
What can I do and how do I fix it? In past experiences, IIS has always worked out of the box so why not now?

    I found your problem, you need to create failed request tracking rules in your site (such as the default site), not the root.
