SOS in sharepoint

  Asked By: Noah    Date: Apr 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 661

I am a newbee to Sharepoint - created a Team Web Site using
Sharepoint services. The server is Windows 2003 and the whole C:\
drive gets backed up on tape everynight. The sql server it uses is MS
SQL Server 2000 and is remote to the sharepoint server.

Something happened (still do not know what!) and the whole Team Site
disappeared. Is there a way to get the site back from the tapes?

The site  data is either mostly or completely stored in SQL (depending on the
specifics of your implementation). That is what you need backups of if the site
is truly missing.

how do I generate the site  again using the SQL data? Is
there any article that explains the procedure? Also, will the backup
tapes of the C:\ drive work in any way? I still do not know what
happened - unless someone had any malicious intent! How do I get the
IIS settings back as well?

Is this just one WSS site  that is missing, or the whole server?

The IIS settings and any customizations of the CSS files, etc will be on the
filsystem backup (assuming WSS was installed in c:\, it usually is). All of the
sharepoint settings (configuration, sites, content, etc) will be in the SQL
database. If you do both a restore of the server  machine and the database to
roughly the same time, that should take care of it. If the data has been
deleted from the database and you don't have a backup (either from stsadm or a
SQL tool), then I'm afraid there's nothing to be done but start over.
