  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Since my SharePoint is broken, I need to recreate PWA. However, I don't want to lose the data. Can I create a PWA with original databases? How to do it?

  • Hi Anna,

    Can you please specifiy the version of Project Server.

    If you're using Project Server 2010, you can have a look at item 'Reprovision the PWA Site' of following article:

    Hope this helps

  • Hello,

    From experience - if you have the databases then you can.

    Back up the databases to an accessible location. (depending what version of Project Server you have depends on the databases you back up).

    You will need to make sure that the server is on the same update level as the databases.

    When it comes to creating the PWA it will ask you for the server and database name. as long as you use the same server and database name then it should provision correctly.

    (Thats the short answer anyway)

    Depending on your experience you could always use power-shell.
