Do you know how to restore sharepoint service 3.0 from backup? Originally, I backed up my sharepoint service 3.0 by using the backup feature. I rebuilt my server. Installed Windows 2003 starndard on the box, downloaded and installed Sharepoint 3.0 on it. Ran the wizard. Then I log on to sharepoint central administration. go to operations, click on restore from backup. somehow, I kept getting message saying
Object sharepoing-80 failed in event restore. Argument exception: The IIS website you have selected is in used by Sharepoint. You must select another name or host.
