SharePoint Content type not found in web application site collection

We have a new portal server installation that is working fine except for one strange error. We created our new site using the “Publishing Site” template and also created subsites below it. All that went fine. However, if we try to create a new page (“Create Page” command from the “Site Actions” Menu) from any of these sites we get this error:

Content type
‘0x01010007FF3E057FA8AB4AA42FCB67B453FFC100E214EEE741181F4E9F7ACC43278EE811’
not found in web

To solve this:

Go to Site Central Admin, User Permissions for Web Application and be sure “Use Client Integration Features” and “Use Remote Interfaces” are enabled. That should do it.

Service unavailable – solution for Virtual PCs

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:Verify that the application pool is configured for the virtual server. The default application pool is MSSharePointPortalAppPool.

Follow these steps to determine the application pool that the virtual server is using:Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.Expand ServerName, expand Web Sites, right-click the virtual server, and then click Properties.Click the Home Directory tab.

The application pool that is configured for the virtual server is listed in the Application pool box.Click OK.Verify that the password for the application pool account is correct. IIS does not automatically poll password changes in Active Directory directory service. If the application pool account is a domain account, and the password expires, you may receive the error message that is described in the “”Symptoms”” section of this article after a new password is specified for the account.

Follow these steps to verify that the password for the application pool account is correct:In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand Application Pools.Right-click the application pool that is configured for the virtual server (for example, right-click MSSharePointPortalAppPool), and then click Properties.Click the Identity tab.In the Password box, type the password of the application pool account that is listed in the User name box, and then click OK.In the Confirm Password dialog box, type the password again, and then click OK.Verify that the application pool account is a member of both the IIS_WPG group and the STS_WPG group on the server:

Use one of the following methods as appropriate to your situation:If Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 is installed on a member server:Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.Expand Local Users and Groups, and then expand Users.Right-click the account that is used by the application pool for the virtual server, and then click Properties.Click the Member of tab.

Verify that bothIIS_WPG andSTS_WPG appear in the Member of list. If one or both groups are not listed, add theIIS_WPG group, theSTS_WPG group, or both groups (as appropriate) to the list.If Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 is installed on a domain controller:Start Active Directory Users and Computers.Expand Users.Right-click the account that is used by the application pool for the virtual server, and then click Properties.Click the Member of tab.

Verify that bothIIS_WPG andSTS_WPG appear in the Member of list. If one or both groups are not listed, add theIIS_WPG group, theSTS_WPG group, or both groups (as appropriate) to the list.Restart IIS to recycle the application pools:In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, right-click ServerName, point to All Tasks, and then click Restart IIS.Click Restart Internet Information Services on ServerName, and then click OK.”

SharePoint 2007 – Unable to edit, delete or close the Content Editor Web Part

The error was caused by the content in the Content Editor Web Part on the page.  This had been copied and pasted to another Content Editor Web Part on the same page and it has brought across some CSS script with it.
This causes the error, but because of the error we cannot delete the web part through the web part’s menu, we can go to the link:  http://server/yourpage.aspx?contents=1, here it will list out all the web parts on the page, you can now delete or hide the failing web part.

Moss 2007 – Failed to determine definition for Feature with ID

The root cause of this error is that the Features table in the content database has an entry with the given GUID, but the Objects table in the Config database does NOT have a corresponding object with that ID. 

This gets caused by the following scenario: a solution with a feature gets deployed and activated to a site. The solution gets retracted without first deactivating the feature at the site level.  So, the site has an orphaned entry.

You can resolve this by running the stsadm -o deactivatefeature -id [guid from log] -url [each site it was activated on] -force.
