Content types are gone after backup restore

  Asked By: Maurice    Date: Sep 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3014

I tried to backup a site-collection and restore it on a different
enviroment. This worked ok by doing:

stsadm -o backup -url <url> -filename .....dat

then on new enviroment:

stsadm -o restore -url <url> -filename ....dat -overwrite

Everything looks ok accept that the site-collection owners are
gone...np...but also all content types are gone which makes most sites
Anyone experienced this before? i tried to google the solution but didn't
find anything yet.... hope you can help me

I found the solution  to this problem.

I created a new Web-app with a site collection and did the restore  with
overwrite.... this deletes the content  types. So this is not the solution.
You should create a Web-app without creating a site-collection  and then
restore without using the -overwrite parameter. Make sure you checked in and
approved all the files you want to be in the restored site-collection.

Hope this will be usefull to anyone.
