Application pool keeps stopping / Service Unavailable in SharePoint Site / 503 error in SharePoint Site

One cause for this issue can be change in password for account with which Application pool is running for changing the Managed account password follow below blog post:
(Never change it from IIS directly)
 
If this is not your case then it can be below issue:
If you check the eventvwr logs you will see below entry in it:
The Module DLL ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\isapi\owssvr.dll’ could not be loaded due to a configuration problem. The current configuration only supports loading images built for a x86 processor architecture.
 
Solution:

4.       Right Click Advance settings
5.       Set Enable 32-bit applications to false

 

SharePoint DateTime control not loading for some user (DateTimeControl Access denied )

It is a permission issue.
 
DateTimeControl field uses the iframe calender page to render the actual calender. The location of iframe.aspx is C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS
The problem appeared to be with managed paths in the site collections, the Users with “Contribute access” were accessing the following path:
http://myserver/_layouts/iframe.aspx (Path to Root site collection where user doesn’t have access)
 
 
The solution:

DateTimeControl .DatePickerFrameUrl =SPContext.Current.Web.Url+”/_layouts/iframe.aspx “;
Or
DatePickerFrameUrl = “” DateOnly=”true” runat=”server” />
~site/ is an equivalent to SPContext.Current.Web.ServerRelativeUrl
~sitecollection/  is an equivalent to SPContext.Current.Site.ServerRelativeUrl
