Can a WSS site be restored if config db is missing?

  Asked By: Travon    Date: Jul 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1129

User still has the content database but deleted the config db by
accident and doesn't have backups. I don't know of a way but thought
someone else might.

I've done it too many times....

The easiest way (from memory) is to:
Create the Config database
Create another content  database
Change the details in the database  table in the Config database
Change the site_id (GUID) in the site  table in the Config database to
match the site_id in the Site table in the old Content database.

Let me know if that doesn't work.
