To archive a project site the steps are as follows:

A. In the home page click Site Actions > Create Project Area. Call this new site Archive/Completed Projects.

B. Now that the Project Area is created you will start to move completed projects.

There are two ways to move completed projects. These are:

Option One

  1. Navigate to your newly created area and choose New Project Site.
  2. Select “Create from Existing Project Site”.
  3. Choose the site you wish to archive.
  4. You now have a duplicate of the site you wish to archive.
  5. Return to the original site and delete the site using site settings.
  6. The site is now archived.

Option Two

To activate the Publishing Infrastructure, do the following:

  1. Click Site Actions > Site Settings.
  2. Click on Site Collection Features.
  3. Activate the Publishing Infrastructure feature.
  4. Return to the top level site.
  5. Copy and paste the following after the top level URL _Layouts/sitemanager.aspx?Source=/_layouts/settings.aspx e.g http://server/sites/ghc/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx?
  6. You will be brought to the Site Content Tool.
  7. The Site Content Tool allows you to select different areas within your Site Collection and also to move sites. A second Site Collection is not needed, however you will need a separate projects area. We suggest creating a test project in your Project Area.
