  • Hello, you should create new site using new-SPWeb command.

    The steps should be:

    # 1) Backup
    Export-spweb "http://XXXX/SiteFrom” -path C:\sitieFrom.cmp
    
    # 2) Create New Site:
    new-spweb "http://XXXX/SiteTo"  -name "SiteTo"
    
    # 3) Restore:
    Import-spweb “http://XXXX/SiteTo”  -path C:\sitieFrom.cmp


    Hope this helps. Regards

  • Create a site collection first, then restore the sp-web. That can be done through the GUI or by using

    New-SPSite

    please advice.
