Questions tagged [ghosting]

When a site is provisioned SharePoint doesn’t really copy the pages for that site (i.e. default.aspx) into a new database table or directory. These files exist only once on each of the front end web servers. Instead SharePoint creates a reference to those files in the database tables that define the new site. This is called “ghosting”.
