    Hey everyone.

    I have a problem with my SharePoint 3.0 installation on a SBS 2008 premium
    in use (after swing migration from SBS 2003).

    Problem description:

    I can't open the central administration site anymore. When I try to open the
    central administration http://servername:24449/ I get an http 404 error.
    I realized the problem when I tried to fix the Windows SharePoint Services 3
    Search error Events ID 2424 an 2436 (Gatherer error).

    As far as I could find solutions, they all need access to central
    administration website sooner or later. So I searched for information on
    fixing the access to central administration 3.0 first or for reinstalling
    SharePoint from scratch. But I just found solution for SBS 2003 to reinstall
    SharePoint not for SBS 2008. I can't rebuild the SBS Server itself, because
    it's in production.

    Any help in regaining access to my SharePoint site is greatly
    appreciated! :)

    Hello Simon,

    Thanks for your post and Susan's input.
