Restore SharePoint to Another Server?

  Asked By: Josiah    Date: Apr 30    Category: MOSS    Views: 682

I want to take a complete backup of our Production SharePoint (2007)
site (and all subsites) and restore it to our staging server.

I know there are a few different backup/restore methods available in
SharePoint - which one should I use?

Have you considered using the Content Deployment features? This should work
very nicely.

If you are looking to backup  the entire site collection then I recommend using
the stsadm utility. Your command line should look something like this:

stsadm.exe -o backup -url http://servername/site -filename

To restore:

stsadm.exe -o restore  -url http://servername/site -filename

If you only want to backup a site, then use:

stsadm.exe -o export -url http://servername/site -filename

To restore:

stsadm.exe -o import -url http://servername/site -filename
