Backup and Restore SharePoint 2010 SiteCollections
I have a site collection running on SharePoint Server 2010. What I would like to do:
1. a backup of the existing site collection 2. create a new site collection (on the same or different server) 3. restore backup from step one to site collection step 2
using PowerShell command.
Here is the command I'm using to do a backup and restore:
Backup-SPSite -Identity "http://mysite.com" -Path "D:\backup\mysite.bak"
Restore-SPSite -Identity "http://new_mysite.com" -Path "D:\backup\mysite.bak"
But I'm getting an error that "Your backup is from a different version of Microsoft Sharepoint Foundation and cannot be restored to a server running the current version. the backup file should be restored to a server with version 188.8.131.52 or later
I'm not sure if it's a right approach. What would be the best way to do it?
