SharePoint Designer 2013 cannot open sites

You get the following error when trying to open a site in SharePoint Designer

Server error: The URL “http:…./author.dll” is not contained within a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation site.

Possible Reasons:

– You created a web application but not the Site Collection.
– There are two sites using the same port. Extend the application and create a new IIS site.
