  • Missing OWA Virtual Directory

    Hello all,

    I have an issue where i have not knowingly deleted the entire 'owa' folder from 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.

    i have no idea when or how i managed to do this but needless to say i could do with rebuilding or re-creating the folder. I've had a look around the net but cannot seem to see any solutions.

    Any help will be hugely appreciated.

    Perhaps you could tell us what the whole problem is. To my knowledge, there is no OWA folder in that location in SBS2008, SBS2003 or Exchange 2003 and I would imagine Exchange 2007.

      I have attached a screen shot.

      Basically the error is - HTTP Error 404.4 - Not Found.

      It goes on to say the physical Path is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\owa\ which doesnt exist.

        On my default install of SBS2008, the OWA directory is located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\owa. I would confirm the existence of that directory.

        Interestingly enough, your screenshot shows an address of https://sites/owa givng you the 404. When I browse the same address on my install, I actually get OWA. This might be an IIS config issue moreso than a deleted file issue.
