I'm wondering if anyone can suggest how I can get rid of a large site (over 10 G) which we don't need anymore. When I try to delete it from the Settings.aspx page I guess process get stuck somewhere - progress bar just sit at around 25% for an hour. When
I cancel out of the delete page - I find the site structure is intact. No clue in the ULS logs - all it says deleting that particular site....
The worse thing is that it makes the whole portal inaccessible...probably due to slowness. I even tried thorugh the STSADM deleteweb command - same result.
I then thought it would be better deleting the whole site collection where that particular site belongs to from the Central Administration. No luck....when it takes the site down I see many different types of application log warnings (1309,
2262) and errors (5586, 6398).
I found another similar posting
here - but really want to avoid the answer from that (I explained why at the end of that post). I'm hoping anyone else can suggest me a way to delete this site. Also any suggestion how long it might take to delete a site of that size?
This is a MOSS 2007 farm with SP2 applied and SQL server 2005 at the backend.
Thank you in advanced!
