Content Deployment

Many of you have played around with content deployment and gone insane trying to get it to work. After much trial and error, I've found the best way to get it to work is to create a blank site on the destination server. On the source server, set up content deployment and the first time around, do a full deployment. Once the full deployment has finished, change it to incremental deployment.

If you need more details, just email me and I'll be more than happy to help out.

Audit Logs KB


I'm not sure how many out there are using the out of the box Audit Logs, but I've come across an issue where if you try to generate a log, the whole system slows down. After doing some research, I came across this, but that doesn't address the issue where its not a custom report, as the other reports you have no control over the date range. If you've come across this before and know of a work around, please let me know.
