File Not Found Error. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm doing some migration from one site collection to another and can't seem to get past this error. Here is what I did:

    - Created the a new site in destination site collection using SPD (used empty site template)

    - Exported site to .cmp (using stsadm) for original source.

    - Imported .cmp (using stsadm) to the destination.

    - Not all the sites have publishing feature turned on so while testing i had a site that gave me the file not found error.

    - I fixed this by turned on the publishing feature for that site and the default page came up. (default.aspx to root of site)

    - I clicked on a link that links a pages directory pages/file.aspx and i get the error again "file not found"

     

    The files are there. I just can't view them.

    Anyone come across this before?

     

    Thanks,

    Kevin

  • if you copy files across different site collections ensure that masterpage which is used on site collection 1, also exists in the _catalogs/masterpage in site collection 2. This is often the reason of such error during migration.
