Create Site Collection based on Custom Site Template

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a site collection where I have activated few publishing features and PowerPivot related features for BI using below link. 

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/querysimon/archive/2012/11/26/installing-the-bi-features-of-sharepoint-2013.aspx


    After setting this site with required features I added few PowerView Reports(.bism,.rdlx) and Custom List and saved this site as a Template. "MyCustomSiteTemplate"

    Now I need to create another site collection based on this new custom site template using PowerShell script. Using CA UI it's straight forward but I would like to achieve this using PowerShell Script.

    From my understanding steps would be as follows:

    1. Create new Site collection

    2. Upload .wsp(site template) to new site's soultion gallary.

    3. Activate features which are activated in custom template

    4.Apply Custom Template to Site collection.

    But I am not sure how I can do this using PowerShell script. I found below link which is based on the same question.

    Please help!!
