We turned on the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature on our MOSS 2007 (after we already had sites created) to allow users to be able to use features like excel services and reporting which both require this be activated the Publishing feature to be turned on,  In order to do this you have to activate the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature at I beleive the top level site, however when we activate this feature it changes the templates and navigation for all the existing SharePoint sites in our collection. 

Is there a way to turn this feature on with out impacting existing site sites?  Or am I doing something wrong that is causing this to happen?  Basically I need to know how I can activate this option (Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure) to just specific sites but not all or turn it on so it does not impact all sites?

Activate "Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" in Central Admin

I wonder if it is possible to activate "Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" in the Central Admin page?

When I try to do that I only get:

Publishing sites and features cannot be activated in the Central Administration Web Application.

On my other site collection(s) I manage to activate this feature by using the "publishing template".

In the logs of sharepoint ( C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN ),
i see the following entries:

SharePoint Server Publishing feature--Can't activate on site (activated fine at site collection lev

If I try to create an Enterprise Wiki, I get the same thing:

One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.

I won't be able to create the wiki until I can get the SharePoint Server Publishing feature activated.

Any one have any ideas? the other 4 site collections are fine.

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
