How to solve HTTP Error 404.17-Not Found in IIS on Localhost:



Step 1: In IIS Click on Application Pools in Application Pools look for the website name you added in IIS. In my case site name is “test” for which I got the HTTP Error 404.17 while browsing the site in browser as shown in diagram below:
