Migrating Sharepoint from Non-publishing site settings to Publishing

  Asked By: Darius    Date: Sep 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 3021

We are migrating Sharepoint MOSS 2007 from one server to another. At
the time that we move the data we would like to change the sites from
non-publishing to publishing sites. What is involved with doing this?
If we use the Export and Import functionality - is this something that
we can do?

i'm not sure the two are connected, but i don't know your entire design. you can
simply move the data to a new site  (probably stsadm.exe -o backup -url
http://web/sitecollection -filename c:\test.bak) and restore to new URL. then,
turn on publishing  feature at site collection and again on the site.

Simply do your export/import normally and then Enable the Publishing
Infrastructure Feature for the destination site  collection and Publishing
Feature for each site after the move.
