Problems occur while creating new Web Application in MOSS 2007

  • When you try to create a new application using SharePoint Central Administration, sometimes "Reset Internet Information Services" may be disabled. It might be due to the "Windows SharePoint Services Administration" service is not started. After starting that service the mentioned service should be enabled.
  • Also after insalling and configuring MOSS 2007, when you try to create a new web application using SharePoint Central Administration by clicking OK button in the new web application page nothing will happen. To overcome that issue, you have to add the SharePoint Central Administration site to the Local Intranet using the Internet Explorer.
