• How do you migrate a WSS2 web site to another server running WSS3?

    I’ve got two servers running Windows SharePoint Services.

    Server ‘A’ is running 2.0, server ‘B’ is running 3.0.

    I’d like to migrate a single web site from A to B.

    I found this KB article - How to move a Windows SharePoint Services Web site from one server to another by using FrontPage 2003, and I thought I’d be clever and use SharePoint Designer to try and do a similar thing, but it doesn’t work.

    You can backup the 2.0 site ok, but when you connect to the empty 3.0 site, the restore function expects a different file type.

    It does seem a reasonable thing to want to do, and it’s annoying that there doesn’t appear to be an obvious solution.

  • National Ride to Work Day

    I got an email from Jeff Kasparian yesterday about National Ride to Work Day.

    I’ve signed up to be the coordinator for our building. We already have about 2-3 regular bike riders - maybe we might get a few extras on 17th October.

    I try and ride to work around once a week, but I do tend to be a bit fussy about picking good weather. It’s a 40km round trip too, so it isn’t something I’d consider doing every day.
