site migration

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi we are migrating a website from a proprietary system  to a new system built inSQL 2008.

We have created a lookup table that contain the UrlAlias of every individual page and its associate id. On every page request the new system has to query the lookup table with around 6,000 pieces of rows to get its id.

Now i am afraid of the load it would generate on our server and make the system slow?

Is there any work around of doing this using rewriter, regular expression etc

.NET Migration Case Study: Using ASP.NET to Build the beta.visualstudio.net Web Site


When the Web site used to collect customer feedback about the Visual Studio .NET beta needed an update, the Visual Studio team saw a good opportunity to implement, deploy, and showcase a real-world site using .NET technologies. This article covers the migration of the Web site, beta.visualstudio.net, from components written in Visual Basic 6.0 and ASP hosted on Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 to ASP.NET and the .NET Framework. The choices of technologies to be incorporated, along with issues such as validation, security, and authentication, are all discussed. Both existing components and the new components written in JScript and ASP.NET that were used to migrate the site are also explained.

SharePoint 2010 Migration - Site Definition (default.aspx ignored)

We have attached a 2007 content db to a 2010 instance of SharePoint and now...the site is not using the default.aspx that is in the file system.

In fact, I am not sure which default.aspx page it is using.  I had expected that after the migration it would be using the site definition default.aspx and the customMasterpage which is located in the site definition.

I have confirmed via the database that it is using the appropriate site definition (web template and configuration id) however it seems to be using some other default.aspx and it is ignoring the custom master page designation in the onet.xml file.

Any ideas on what is going on here?


Sharepoint 2010 Migration (from Non SP site)


My company is looking at migrating to a new sharepoint 2010 site from a non sharepoint site.

I have been tasked with making sure that we manage URL's in the migration to keep SEO and stop dead pages. Our current site has over 15,000 pages to which not all are being migrated. secondly we are not migrating look and feel that will be a whole new site with a ifferent structure.

To make this work i need some way of getting sharepoint to recognise URL's being accessed by the old site and redirect to best suited page. Now i had thought about doing a complete migration into sharepoint of our existing site but then realised this probably wont work as sharepoints /pages/ would break the old sites URL???

This what im looking for...


A method of importing URL structure from old site

Importing this structure into Sharepoint
making this structure aware of the new site and then knowing where to redirect it in the new site

Hoping i have made this clear... oh and btw im Sharepoint Noooob... So would be greatful if you bear that in mind in your replies?!?!





Can't open site in sharepoint designer after migration


I moved  a client's WSS 3.0 instance (application and databases) from a Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 environment.


After the move, the sites look ok in internet explorer and seem to be working fine via the intended url "sps.clientswebsite.com".  However, I am now unable to open the site in sharepoint designer 2007.  I only have access to the new sharepoint server itself, so that is the only computer I have tried connecting via SPD on.  When I open Sharepoint designer, click open site, then type the address "sps.clientswebsite.com" I get the message:



Path does not exist.

Check the path and try again.


I get the same when trying to open any individual aspx page from SPD's "Open" dialog by copying and pasting in a page's url.


If, however, I open up a site in internet explorer and, for example, go to site settings > galleries > masterpages and then choose "Edit in Microsoft Office Sharepoint Designer" I get a different error:


The server could not complete your request. Contact your Internet service provider or Web server administrator to make sure that the server has the FrontPage Server Extensions or Sha

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices.

You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.
