WSS 3.0 – Site too large to export to template

with 2 comments

We need to export one of our WSS 3.0 sites to a template, just the site structure, not the content.  When we tried to do this Sharepoint said that as the site template would be over 10MB (the site has a lot of customer ASPX pages, graphical buttons and graphical alerters in it) we couldn’t do this.  Not good!  I spoke to our .NET developer who pointed me to a description of how to extend the limit using STSADM.  We don’t host the server ourselves (for historical reasons, we inherited it from a customer, so we do site development, add and remove users and are the first point of contact whilst the hosting company do the backend stuff) so I’ve flagged it up to the hosting company to ask them to extend the limit so we can export the site template.

  1. Hi Steve

    Are these the WSS sites from school effectiveness? BASS?

    • Keith, no a different site. We are aware of the BASS-Net site but have nothing to do with it.
