In this post we will see how to fix the blank page error when new web application or site collection is created.
It is also observed that when we browse central admin it shows blank page where as all the settings are fine.
What ever might be the case, you can fix this problem

New Site Collection

In my case I am getting blank page when navigated to the new site collection which I have created.


Fixing the problem

Go to the IIS and select the respective web application. Here, I have selected the web application to which the site collection belongs to. Double click the Authentication icon as in the following diagram

Set the status of ‘Basic Authentication’ from ‘Disabled’ to ‘Enabled’.

Now the site opens normally
TeamSite Homepage


The problem is annoying untill we fix it with a simple solution. This problem is faced on the SharePoint 2010 dev environment installed with Windows 7 HomePremium. Sometimes we face the same issue with central admin after installation. Go to the web application of central admin and do the same thing as above.
