As someone new to SP admin I am having trouble understanding the difference between "site collections"and "application pools."
Can anyone give some guidance in plain English rather than MS speak?

We have a MOSS 2007 site called for example Sharepoint-80, url is: http://ourdomain.com, under it I created a team site collection, the url is:
My question is in IIS directory, I cannot find a directory named either "sites" or "HRDepartment". I know IIS directory isnot like sharepoint directory. But I need to look at IIS settings for the subsite directory, how and where can I find it - to find a
site collection directory in IIS?
I am trying to figure out the best option for this scenario:
Client has existing intranet (SP 2010 - Claims based authentication). They now want to Use SP 2010 for Externally facing site. This site will be primarily an internet site but will also also login to access some of the information not exposed to the
internet (so I guess it is also an Extranet). Content/ Admin will be managed from from single source (the current intranet site), obviously information they choose to show on Internet/ Extranet will be a subset of what is available on the intranet.
What is advisable in terms of architecture?
1. Should I be looking at creating a site collection?
-Then use content deployment to pass all content from intranet to extranet?
2. Should I Extend the current web application - And still use content deployment.
3. Should I be looking at creating a whole new web application?
What are the implications in particular to do with authentication and getting access to the content I should be aware of?
I follow the tutorial and creted a web site for my company sales system. One of my collegue mention we use the wrong templet, we should use Web application for company application.
Should i continue using web site or change to web application? We are creating application for company sales, inventory, hr ,etc where possible more than 1000++ user. And during month end, it will be high traffic and transaction. can Web Site Template with BLL and DAL handle it? or i just need a powerful server?
I've been building web sites and for my next project I will be creating a web application. I use a 'BasePage' class in all my projects but, since web applications do not contain the 'App_Code' folder, what is the best place/practice for the 'BasePage' class?
In my current system MOSS and windows 2003, I do not know where to see connection pool live time ? and Application pool live time?
How to keep live these for certain number of hours? Where can I change? Is it possible to keep minimum number of connection pool live always?
Thanks for help in advance.
Usage analysis processing is enable for my farm in both Central Administration and in the SSP.
I've checked TImer Job Status and the three timer jobs responsible for doing the log analsis are all running.
I've also checked the log file locations and the log files are being generated.
Yet when I browse the "Site collection usage summary" report (SpUsageSite.aspx) I get the following:
No data is available for this report. Usage analysis might have been enabled only recently, or there might have been insufficient usage to result in any values for the report.
My farm is running 2007 Enterprise SP2 (188.8.131.5221).
Can someone confirm if this issue was fixed with one of the CU's that were issues post-SP2?
Does anyone know if the Site Collection Usage Report includes activity that occurs from Outlook? For example, if a user contributes to a discussion board without ever physically touching the site or if the user just reads list content from Outlook,
is this included?
ANY help at all is greatly appreciated.
In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.ÃÂ However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to doÃÂ local searches at the site collection level and as aÃÂ result we are presented with the typical error below.
No results matching your search were found.
I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.ÃÂ We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.
Any thoughts to this?
