I've been working on a SharePoint 2010 site in a development area for a while, and now I've come to export individual sites (rather than the entire site collection) so that I can import them onto my production server.
When I run
stsadm -o import -url https://myserver -filename mysite.cmp I get the following error:
Error: Cannot import site. The exported site is based on the template BLANKINTERNET#2 but the destination site is based on the template BLANKINTERNET#0. You can import sites only into sites that are based on same template as the exported site.
Fair enough. I don't think that I can change the site template used on my production server, so I'm resigned to deleting the site collection and remaking it (no content yet, not a big deal).
However, I cannot figure out how to create a site collection based specifically on
BLANKINTERNET#2. When I go to create the new site collection, I'm only presented with the "Publishing Site" option (_admin/createsite.aspx > Template Selection > Publishing tab). I'm pretty sure this is what I did on both the dev and production servers, so my questions are:
- why has one used template #0 and the other #2?
- Is there indeed a way to convert my site collection from #0 to #2?
- How can I create a site collection based specifically on template
Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
