SharePoint site down, repeat, site down....

Well, more issues concerning Microsoft releasing hotfixes that completely ruin otherwise perfectly fine installations of sharepoint.

And again I say, do not ever install Microsoft Updates for your production servers without first checking to see if you need the update and can survive the consequences (backup, backup, backup, don't forget to backup before you apply it).

So a great many people have had either Central Administration become unaccessible, or all of their sharepoint sites.

There are blogs that have suggestions, one is vlad's, and one is a "near official" Microsofty's blog entry-- Check these out and see if they help.

And if you are wondering why I am not suggesting fixes step by step-- well I usually don't do step by steps if I don't need them. And, I didn't install the hotfix on any of my servers because they didn't need it. So I have not had any problems.... Mind you, if I had needed it, that would be a different story...
