Ok installing a new Moss farm and got all sorted apart this error
An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: The server committed a protocol violation. Section=ResponseStatusLine
when i try to setup a new ssp its the first one in a new install
nothing in eventvwr to indicate problems
anyone got any ideas on this
Check in IIS Manager to see whether the website's running.
If not, try to run it.
When it doesn't run, open up a command-line and run 'netstat -ano > ports.txt' to dump the list of services using ports to a text file. Open the text file, find out what's using the port which the website is trying to use, kill it and try launching the web site again.
Jamesb is right something else is using port 80 therefore your web server cannot open and use the port. Kill the process and start your web server in IIS manager.
