I am trying to save site as template WITHOUT CONTENT, and the result is an error that the site is too large to save as template. the size of template cant exceeds 524288000 bytes.

I have about 25 lists and 10 columns in each list.

I do not believe site is that big without data.

Please help!


according to the documentation ms: MaxTemplateDocumentSize your are right, there is a limit to export templates

In this case use Export-SPWeb

make sure to use the NoFileCompression flag

Good Luck

  • Can Export-SPWeb be used to create site without content, because I need that and not site with content? – Baxter Nov 27 '14 at 16:17
  • No it doesn't have that option. but, you can increase the size limit with this command: stsadm -o setproperty -pn max-template-document-size -pv 550000000 – Marco Nov 28 '14 at 14:29
