IIS7 problem on 2010 exchange server

By milancas1 ·
Hi
A 2010 exchange on was installed on 2008 server by somebody else in one of our branch offices. We have Exchange 2003 in HQ and managed to set up emails routing between both exchange servers and users in the branch office are using new, local exchange fine.
The problem I have is with IIS7 on the new exchange. It was never working (there is a question mark over Default Web Site, can't get OWA etc.). I tried to fiddle with it a bit but possibly made it worse. When I try to access exchange or any other .html file (I've created for testing) using http://localhost/...... I just get a blank page.
It's probably something to the handler but I don't know much about IIS and have no idea what to do next.
Any help much appreciated

Well, to begin with

If you???re running a website outside the wwwroot folder, you need to grant the ???Everyone??? group view and execute permissions on the folder.

If you???re running a website on an x64 machine but the binaries were compiled for a 32-bit system, you need to enable 32-bit applications.

Hi Robo
Thanks for the suggestion. The website is in wwwroot folder. I don't know much about binaries and how they were compiled (how would I find out?). The IIS was installed automatically with installing exchange 2010 on x64-bit 2008 server but we have a primary exchange 2003 on x32-bit 2003 in our HQ office so not sure if this messed things up.
I've enabled 32-bit application and then got "HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable" problem described in this blog - http://www.mosmar.com.au/chris-blog/2011/3/15/taking-care-of-bitness-or-how-to-run-a-32-bit-app-with-owa-2.html
Have done everything as instructed and now have the same problem again with the blank page and there are no errors in Event Viewer.

Hi Robo
To update
I've installed Static Content feature, which is under IIS. After that I can actually open .html files, which are in wwwroot folder (couldn't do that before) but still have a blank page when trying to open http://localhost/exchange The content of this is in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\owa and I've changed permissions to everyone here as well but didn't make any difference.
This brings me to question - what permissions need to be set up on Default Web site for exchange 2010 (have main exchange on 2003 machine in HQ) and subfolders like owa... ?
Thanks
