We are migrating our SharePoint databases to a new database server.  This new database server will have a new name for SharePoint to reference.  How do I go about pointing SharePoint 2007 from the old database server name to the new name?

It seems like there should be a simple solution, but I have yet to find a solid procedure.

Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

sharepoint 2007 server needs to be restarted twice a day???



our sharepoint server needs to be restarted twice a day now - always around 9.30am and 14.30pm.  this has only started in the last 2 weeks.  its working along fine then all of a sudden it goes to a dead page.

i have spent the last week trying to identify what it is.  i have set the logging to verbose and put plenty of the messages in there into google but can not see anything relevant.  the event viewer shows nothing.

i have sp2 installed but no cumalitve updates.  i am wary of installing these at the mo and wreaking the whole thing.  if noone has any suggestions ill install them.  ill list soem details about the problem below. 

it doesnt happen on weekends so it must have something to do with users using the system so im thinking something to do with the database (SQL Server 2000).  NB users dont use our sp2007 on weekends. 
if i restart iis, the layout of the page comes back but some of the webparts are dead so that doesnt work. 
if i resart sql server, that doesnt work either. 
there is plenty of room on drives and the task manager is at 20-30% when i check it when the site is down.
only a server resart seems to work.

there are just so many messages in the sp logs that i cant identify what it could be.  is there any other loggi
