Move a sharepoint site
Posted on 2011-10-07
I have inherited a customized sharepoint website that is hosted externally. I need to transfer this external sharepoint site to an internal SBS2008 sharepoint server. I have an existing internal sharepoint site, and don't want to overwrite this, but want to incorporate the external site into the existing site. The company that manages the site wants a large sum of money to copy the site using stsadm. I need to avoid paying this fee.
I have full access to the external site using Sharepoint Designer. Is it possible to get a full copy of all the data, workflows, etc. using Designer? If so, what is the best way to accomplish this?
What I found online indicates that the best way is stsadm, and that the other methods are limited.
Please help! Thanks.
