Recovery crisis

  Asked By: Benjamin    Date: Dec 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1025

Somehow during some hardware maintenance the IIS files for my sharepoint site
have gone missing. The databases are all still intact. I have successfully
recreated the central admin. Now I need to find a way to recreate the web
applications that host our content and connect to the existing database so that
our users can access their information again. How do I do that? Do I simply
create a new web app and connect the existing content database?

You got it. Just recreate  your content  web apps. Then either tell it to
create a database  that has the same name as your existing  ones, or
create new databases  and swap your old ones in. Either way works fine.

I got it working. Interestingly enough, when I tried to extend the current web
application, all of the files  for the other web  applications (default and
extranet) magically re-appeared. There are still some minor hiccups here and
there but nothing that is unmanageable.

To recover IIS files for the process which are mentioned the other users above but if these methods doesn't work for you then don't worry you can still recover you IIS files with the use of sharepoint recovery software.
