Unable to open any documents in SharePoint

You cannot open documents via the Office WebAccess (OWA). The documents are fine and downloading them and the opening them works just fine. If there is no other errors and you are not trying to open documents, while loggin in as a system account, assume that the OWA install works fine.

Moving a SharePoint Document library to a new SiteCollection via PowerShell
