during my internship my group created a tool for handling surveys. All stuff is put in one site collection, consisting of several subsites with adjusted master pages, custom lists and workflows. Now we need to move this site collection, including all dependencies, to another 2010 productive server.
Unfortunately we have no Visual Studio experience and we are running a little out of time (the next 2 weeks just 1 day a week) to finish this. Before choosing the wrong method to do this I wanted to ask what method should be preferred to perform this:
1) http://spdeploymentwizard.codeplex.com/ (which makes use of the content-migration API)
2) Backup and Restore Site Collection via Central Administration
3) Other method (Template or something similar)?
Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
