Licensing situation with internet facing website using sharepoint foundation

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm considering using wss 4.0 for my internet facing website, with windows 2008, sql server 2008 standard on the same physical server. What is the licensing cost I'm looking at? Sifting through Microsoft's literature gave me a headache, yet no closer to an answer. Can anyone give a ballpark number, the way the total costs are added up, and the kind of licenses(processor, server, CAL, external connector etc.) for each components? Also, can I use sql server express with wss 4.0?

Internet facing SharePoint site - user shouldn't have to log in to change the langague

Hello, I am using SharePoint 2010 for Internet sites.  Anonymous access has been enabled.  Language packs have been installed so that users can switch to different languages as required.  However, the only way for a different language to be selected other than the default is for the user to log into the site and then the option would be displayed.....This is an internet facing site with anonymous access therefore users shouldn't have to log in to change the language.  Can someone guide/advise on switching the lanuguage of the site without loggin in. Thanks, Shelley

I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80).

    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
