I created a new sharepoint Web Application, and a new site collection underneath it, and both were successfully created and I received "Top-Level Site Successfully Created".

However, when accessing the new site, I receive a "HTTP 404 Not Found" error.

I checked the following in IIS:

  • Web Application has been created and shown in IIS
  • Restart the  Application Pool while it is already running.

But still the same error "The webpage cannot be found".

HTTP 404 Not Found

How can I solve HTTP 404 NOT found in SharePoint 2019?
