comment Was the old SharePoint shipped with a javascript bug & how do I update it to latest version?
Thank you for linking the article, i'll mail it to myself for reading later ;-) I got to grips with removing sites, creating new virtual servers and applications, its quite good 3.0, I just wish MS had put a bit more effort into finishing the installation GUI x-D Thanks again you gave me the inspiration to have another go at fixing it :-)

wooohooooo! finally managed to delete 99% of the sharepoint installation, and reinstall back to wss3.0 - will try to configure an internet sharepoint site now, hopefully that will resolve the internal domain/policy issues/requirements. SharePoint zero to hero in 2 days xD

I also have subversion running on port 443, I think I saw somewhere that this port might be needed so disabled for the time being

why is it so hard to uninstall! i want a "gtfo the system" checkbox, going to uninstall wss3&2 - I think that the step I missed was what is shown here .. sharepointroad.wordpress.com/2008/03/22/… ,, but to be fair the original site was already installed when i got the box.

Could not find stored procedure dbo.proc_getobjectbyclass (it looks like I never uninstalled the wss3.0 db properly?) downloaded the hotfix mentioned on the URL below (KB934790), and it gets further in the configuration process but bombs out with "The object with id b614c988-eab5-4fbd-8024-a9574ee2b199 does not exist in the configuration store" - not sure what to do now (I choose the install mode which allows me to upgrade the site manually once the v3 service is installed but it wont install :-(

Yes your right, the server must have been fine all along. This is the first time I have ever attempted to work with SharePoint (other than as a restricted user) and I have to admit, these problems have confused me quite a lot - Not sure about the policies, I cocked up the install and am having problems reinstalling WSS 3.0 (one error after another :-( - as its a new system I might just reinstall the whole server next week and try again then, I have at least learnt a hell of a lot about the administration side of SharePoint.

Must be a policy issue (still not resolved) because if I connect to it on local host (on the server) it worked fine, all other PC's have this problem. Problem is I have now cocked up the install and cannot reinstall wss3.0 :(

If I connect to SharePoint via localhost (on the server) I dont get these problems, anywhere else and I do, must be a domain thing but adding to trusted sites didnt help.

Also, where there is a tool bar that contains "New, Upload, Actions, Settings" the buttons work, but if I click the arrow to the right of the button, which makes a different drop down appear with extended options, again I click on the item and it does nothing. If I go to "New" > "New Folder" and click it, it closes the sub menu but does Nothing. T_T
