So recently a Client reported an issue with his SharePoint 2010 Server where one of the user was not able to open his mysite with the following error.

Mysite Http 404

We started to look into the issue and found that the SharePoint profile of that user didn’t have any information about the path of MySite, so we went ahead and fixed that

Select Application Management-> Manage Service Application under Central administration

Select your UserProfile Service app from the list now -> Select Manage User Profile and now find the problem user and get into its profile. ( as in below screenshot)

Now we found that the Personal Site box under user profile was blank, so we went ahead and updated the mysite path there.

Check the Personal SIte box it should list the path to the mysite of the user

Check the Personal SIte box it should list the path to the mysite of the user

After this when we tried to pull up the user profile, we got a new error An unexpected error has occurred.
