Access Denied!!!

It was on the my first few days of  SP 2010 administration work. My colleague buzzed me that “My site” was giving access denied. I was puzzled, because it was working 30 mins back. That said now, being from SP developer background, i went ahead and checked logs no useful information, checked database permission – it was in place, provided read permission on web application – not useful.

30 mins was over by this time, though it was QA environment pressure was building as UAT was about to start. Then i tried logging in as installation account, to my surprise it is working. Okay, what is the issue now, after spending few more mins on the My Site Host site collection, it was all because one person has uploaded a new master page, but failed to publish.

I have seen to many threads in MSDN blogs that ‘My Site is giving Access denied’ & ‘Search center is giving access denied’, and one common thing i keep hearing from them is that it was working yesterday.

So, if you are getting accessed denied error message which used to work before then check following items if they are in published & approved state

-> Master Page

-> Page Layout

-> Any resources that is utilized by that page.
