Site Backup/restore

  Asked By: Hiral    Date: Aug 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 853

We are trying to move a site collection from the development farm to
production. The site is a publishing site with customized style sheets
and images. I first did a stsadm backup of the site on the development
msgId=28043/stime=1211992990/nc1=3848585/nc2=3848643/nc3=4990217> then
just to check out the process I did a restore of the site back to the
development server expecting no changes to the site. Now the site on the
Dev box is missing the images and style sheet information. The links
don't work. The files are there but the links don't find the files.

Did we miss something in the backup/restore process?

Stsadm.exe -o backup  -url http://sitecollectionurl -filename c:\ben.bak.
I would lock the site  collection in Central Admin first. That could
possible cause your issue if they were being accessed. I would not use
stsadm.exe -o export | import.
