[SOLVED] 404 error on O365 subsite lists

P1 account.

Subsite inherits web site permissions.

Where exactly you get the 404. What type of list show the failure and can you provide also the url?

Now I don't get the 404 but P1 team site lists and libraries both show the red error I mentioned in the other discussion:

Web does not allow anonymous access.

Lib: http://wb3.sharepoint.com/TeamSite/Docs%20private/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Spoke too soon - now on an E3 account I am getting  a 404 when I click the anon access icon.

It's a blog site list at:


I was sure this already had anon permissions.

After some investigation I figure out the root cause for the problem "Web does not allow anonymous access".

Please see the following blog post for the solution


I couldn't reconstruct the 404 failure, right now I tried it on an E3 account and it was working.

Sorry for the delay, I didn't get a note you'd replied.

All the urls I mentioned were of course not in public site collections - I must've thought I could make team site libs anonymous for some reason!

Thanks for the follow up. It's a brilliant solution.
