Cant upload big files in 2008

If you have changed the file size limit in CA, and then it doesnt work, check if you have win2008 since there's an knowed issue.

Found solution here. KB here.

Good resource on large files and Sharepoint: Paul Gavin.

Sharepoint Training

Office SharePoint Server 2007 Training download.

But 2010 is coming :)

Backup and restore, content types disappear

If you try to backup a site collection and restore it, everything looks fine but when you try for example to create a page you might receive a nice 'content type not found' error.

Not even the default content types are 'restored'. A google search pointed me to this site.

Marvelous, just run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard and you should be back in business. Real simple solution.
