How to move/deploy site from test server to production

  Asked By: Marques    Date: May 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 9791

Take the backup of site by using Stsadm -export command if this is single site ,
For entire site collection, use stsadm -backup command. If site missing the
contents then move the content database from Test Sql Server to Prod SQL server.

Just beware that an export will not get alerts, recycle bin, Web parts
personalization and probably more. Whereas -backup  is full fidelity (when SC is
locked), but scoped to site  collection.

To export/import a single  site, I think you must use sharepoint designer. Maybe
an SPD expert here will know.

Yes, that's correct.

SharePoint Designer includes a menu option site  > Administration >
Backup Web Site...

This is exactly the same as stsadm  -o export (uses the same APIs
under the covers), except:

* The export file(s) are downloaded through the network to the
user's desktop
* The user has the option to include or exclude sub-sites
* The user does not have the option to include security
