I can access the administrator front end but:

  1. http://localhost cannot find the page
  2. Any apps cannot be located via a browser
  3. I have reinstalled, if you call it that - did it via the server manager, but no such luck.

Have you checked your IIS logs? – josephs8 May 13 '11 at 15:28

That's actually a feature! :D (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) – kce Jun 16 '11 at 21:49

Double check your IIS binding to make sure that it allows port 80, (all unassigned) and no host header. That will get http://localhost. Check Event Viewer. If there are any issues, it should report there.

Also, try a specific page to rule out the default doc settings. e.g. http://localhost/default.aspx.
