Error Creating Sharepoint Site

Today I was working on creating a new sharepoint site, and after creating the site from the central admin, I got the following error:

HTTP/1.1 404
Connection: close
Date: Tue, 16 Sep 2008 05:09:29 GMT
Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
MicrosoftSharePointTeamServices: 12.0.0.6219

I searched on the error and found the following solution, so just wanted to
share the solution with you guys.

Make sure you reset the IIS after creating the site in central admin. Run the following command
to reset IIS “IISRESET /NOFORCE”

After resetting the IIS run the following command

“C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\MICROSOFT SHARED\WEB SERVER EXTENSIONS\12\BIN\STSADM.exe” -O CREATESITE -URL http://servername -OWNEREMAIL <e-mail> -OWNERLOGIN <domain\username>

You can get more details on this command using the following command,

C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\MICROSOFT SHARED\WEB SERVER EXTENSIONS\12\BIN\STSADM.exe -help CreateSite

After executing this command you can access your site. You will be asked for the site template to be applied to the site and also the members that will be able to access the site.

KERS – The future of Racing

The system, called KERS for Kinetic Energy Recovery Systerms, is designer to capture energy from the car’s movement and reuse it in power bursts instead of fuel. It is a key element in Formula One’s attempt to become a more energy-efficient and technologically and socially releveant sport.

KERS allows team to take energy generated under braking, store it, and use it again for concentrated burst. The KERS will be mandatory in Formula One from 2009. It is  a step towards making Formula One cars hybrid and more environment friendly by 2013.  There are two technical solutions to KERS – mechanical and electrical. A mechanical KERS uses a flywheel to retain power under braking; an electrical system, uses an electric motor. More powerful KERS will be allowed from 2011, and operate on all four wheels from 2013.

While some support the KERS, which will make Formula One cars more environment friendly, some are quite reluctant to introduce the system.
