WSS move one web application from one server to another

Postby guest » Thu May 22, 2008 9:18 pm

After you move one web application from one server to another, you receive "File not
found" when trying to access the site.


Before we go further, I recommend you follow the steps outlined below to
backup and restore the web application and its content database again.
Then, check if this issue recurs. This may help us narrow down if this
issue related to the backup and restore process, although you may not find
any errors during the process.

Step # 1: Identify Content Database (s) of Web Application
" Open MOSS 2007 Central Administration
" Go to "Application Management" Tab and Click link "Site Collection List"
under "SharePoint Site Management".
" You can Content Database Name under database column.

Step # 2: Content Database Backup
" After identifying the content database in the previous step, take the
identified database backup by using SQL Server 2005 Management Studio.
S
tep # 3: Restore Content Database on Destination Server
" Logged into Destination Server and restore content database by using SQL
Server 2005 Management Studio

Step # 4: Create New Web Application on Destination Server
" Open MOSS 2007 Central Administration on destination server.
" Go to "Application Management" Tab and Click link "Create or extend Web
Application" under "SharePoint Web Application Management".
" Next Screen click "create a new web application".

Step # 5: Detach/Remove Content Database of Web Application
" Click "Content Databases" under "SharePoint Web Application Management"
on Application Tab.
" Next Page, Select you're newly created web application and then click
content database.
Note: Normally content database name is WSS_Content_[GUID].
" Next Page, Choose "Remove Content Database", you will get a warning
message.
" Click "OK".
" Click "OK" button at the bottom of the page to remove content database.

Step # 6: Attach Content Database of Web Application
" Now there is no content database associated with web application.
" In order to attach content database restored on Step # 3, we will use
STSADM command line tool.
" Open Command Prompt, navigate to folder "C:\Program Files\Common
Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\"
¡¤ Run the following Command:
stsadm -o addcontentdb -url [http://webapplication:port]
-databasename [WSS_Content_GUID] -databaseserver [Database Server Instance]
" Replace URL, databasename and database server name according to your
scenario.
" After running the command you will get a message "Operation completed
successfully".
" Now restart IIS by running IISRESET Command on command prompt.

Browse the web application again and you will see that web application is
restored successfully with full functionality.
