I created the new site collection. I had previously created a site collection in another server.

I want to move my old site collection's content to new site collection. How can I this? I searched on the net but I'm confused. How I can do export and import?

  • What you mean by you want to move pieces? – Amal Hashim Dec 22 '14 at 13:20
  • I want to move list list or page page to another site collection. – zengel Dec 22 '14 at 13:24
  • Ok in that case you can save the library as template and then upload it to list gallery. Create new list using that, then use it. – Amal Hashim Dec 22 '14 at 13:25

There are two common options you have

  1. Using Central Administration site
  2. Using Powershell

Backup

  1. Start the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell.
  2. At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following command:

Backup-SPSite -Identity <SiteCollectionGUIDorURL> -Path <BackupFile> [-Force] [-NoSiteLock] [-UseSqlSnapshot] [-Verbose]

- <SiteCollectionGUIDorURL> is the ID or URL for the site collection you want to back up.
- <BackupFile> is the path to where the backup file is located.

Restore

  1. Start the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell.
  2. At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following command:

Restore-SPSite -Identity <SiteCollectionURL> -Path <Backup file> [-DatabaseServer <DatabaseServerName>] [-DatabaseName <ContentDatabaseName>] [-HostHeader <Host header>] [-Force] [-GradualDelete] [-Verbose]

- <SiteCollectionURL> is URL for the site collection you want to restore.
- <DatabaseServerName> is name of the database server where the site collection resides.
- <ContentDatabaseName> is the name of the content database.
