Can't open site in sharepoint designer after migration

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

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:

-----------------------

http://sps.clientswebsite.com/

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

But it throws an error "The folder ['http://servername:12345/'] isn't accessible.

How to open Sharepoint 2010 Site in Sharepoint 2010 Designer?

  

Hi,

I'm trying to open my site in sharepoint designer 2010.

I've read a forum that in order to open it in the Sharepoint designer, you must extend your web app. After i've extended my web app my site can now be open in sharepoint designer. But when i've close it then tried to open it again. It wasn't opening again. No error message or anything. Then i've tried to open my Web app extension it promt "Path does not exist".

Does any body know how to resolve this problem?

Thanks! :)


How to Establish a Remote Web Site Connection in SharePoint Designer 2007

  

I am modifying a SharePoint site and so far so good.  Some of the objects were created using Visual Studio 2008 (C#).  I was able to modify these objects and implement them on the targete machine without issue.  The final step is to implement the ASPX pages that were modified using SharePoint Designer 2007.  These are aspx pages that are used to modify items in lists.  All the pages involved in this upgrade are customized.  I need to upgrade the target site with the modified version of these pages.  My intent is to copy the code from the page in the source site and past it into the same page on the target site.  I tried using the Remote Web Site connection tool in SharePoint Designer 2007 but received the following error message:

"Unable to open 'https://(site address)'.  Server Error:  Could not find a Web server at 'website'.  Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly.  If you are sure that everything is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service."

I am not sure how to first check to see if the Web Server is temporarily out of service.  I would appreciate your input on how to verify this.

Background information of target machine:  WinServer 2008, IIS 7, Sharepoint (MOSS2007), site on port 80

I'm having trouble in Designer 2007.  I can not open any sites files on sites on our prodution server.  I get "Couldn't open file ..........aspx".  On our development server I can't even open sites.  I get "Invalid folder name".  Can anyone please advise?  I have seen other posts about this behavior, but none of the solutions have worked for me.  I've uninstalled Expression Web, I don't have Front Page installed, and I ran a repair installation on Designer.  Still no luck.  Any ideas please?

Trigger a macro anytime a site or web is opened in SharePoint Designer

  
Within SharePoint Designer (not interfacing with SharePoint services), I would like to have a macro automatically run anytime a web is opened. I assume I need to use the OnWebOpen VBA event but I'm not sure how to write this into a module. Is there any chance someone could assist me with what this sub routine should look like? Thank you!

After Installing SharePoint Foundation 2010, trying to open site gives 404 error in browser

  

I had this as reply on a thread about migrating from WSS 3.0 to SFS 2010. But I have completed all the steps with the modified documentation, but the browser delivers an error 404 when I try to open the site I created.  Same thing happens if I go at it via https, but first I get a certificate warning error (using the IP instead of the FQDN) and then being prompted for credentials.

I am completely stumped at what else to look at.  Any help in gathering information to get help is also appreciated.

Environment:  SBS 2008, SFS 2010, SQL Express 2008.  Rest of the IIS sites continue to function normally and I can get to the management site ok.  Although after the install, I had to go into application pool and change the service account from the domain admin (it defaulted to that) to networkservice account, otherwise I got a 503.  Same thing happened on the site I created until I changed the service account.  Now just a 404.


No permission to open a list pages in Sharepoint Designer 2007

  

We have a sharepoint site with two main lists.

List 1: I could open the pages, make changes BUT cannot create workflows (for the site).
List 2: I could not even open it. I get the message
"You do not have permission to do this operation. Ask your web site administrator to change your permission and try again, or log on with user account that has this permission ...."

I am secondary server administrator and also have 'full control' of the site.

Any ideas?

Thank you


Word 2007 documents won't open from Sharepoint Services site

  
I have a Sharepoint Services 3.0 site that contains shared documents, Word, Excel, PDF, etc.  I cannot open Word documents directly from the shared documents portal.  Other file types like Excel adn PDF open fine.  It's only Word that has the issue.  I'm using Word 2007 and it doesn't matter if it is a .docx or a .doc, both act the same.  Word tries tro open, then just sits there....no error message or anything.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

infopath template on wss2.0 sharepoint site has been deleted - how to open infopath forms?

  

Hi All

Is there any way to open infopath forms (from a sharepoint site) if the template has been removed?

I have a case where infopath forms (xml files) have been saved to a sharepoint site, but the templates (xsn files) have been deleted.

Some users are still able to open the infopath forms and I'm guessing it is because the templates are cached on their workstations.

The problem obviously comes into play when a new user or user with a new workstation tries to open the infopath forms.

Any ideas how these files could be opened?


SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit

  

Hi,

I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

Thanks,

Kevin

Can no longer upload any files to the site via Sharepoint Designer

  

Greetings.

My colleague is using Sharepoint Designer with MOSS 2007. She made a folder in the site root and is putting pictures of employees there in order to show them in profiles. Suddenly, this morning, she can no longer do it. She can create new folders, rename them, etc, but if she tries to upload any file anywhere via the Designer, a message will instantly pop up (as usual, message is in russian, with no error code...) complaining about "connection time out" or "connection lost" or something. Of course, since she can still rename folders etc, the connection is just fine.

We tried iisreset and reboot of the pc running the designer but it didnt help. Still we cannot upload any file anymore. 

More than that, previously she could upload files with going into a document library, then using an option to "open in explorer", then a windows explorer windows would pop up, showing the address of the sharepoint site folder in adress bar, like "http://sharepointsrv/sites/portal/Sharepoint/" and allowing to copy files into it, and those files copied there would then appear on the server in the doc library. But now copying files this way also does nothing.

All we remember doing fro
