Sharepoint 2003 Backup with SSL Enabled
Read more about that here
After I set that up I found that my Sharepoint 2003 backup script was failing.
Here is the error:
The server instance specified was not found. Please specify the server's address and port.
The example I got from Microsoft included this as the path: http://localhost and that does not seem to work once you add SSL.
This is the batch file I use to backup my Sharepoint site:
echo Backup of all sites on the SharePoint 2003 Server echo Written by Ed Hammond
c: cd \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\BIN stsadm.exe -o backup -url http://localhost -filename D:\SharePoint_backup.dat -overwrite
echo Backup completed
Now just replace localhost with the IP address of your sharepoint server and you'll be set.
