However, if you want to enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), you must be a member of the local Administrators group, and the user running the Stsadm.exe program must be a member of the db_owner database role on the configuration database for the operation to succeed. On the taskbar, click Start, point to All Programs, point to SharePoint Portal Server, and then click SharePoint Central Administration. Alternatively, on the Site Settings page for a portal site, in the General Settings section, click Go to SharePoint Portal Server central administration. It is recommended that you enable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for the virtual server for SharePoint Central Administration on each front-end Web server on the server farm. Otherwise, passwords can be sniffed across the network. 1. On the taskbar, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. 2. In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand the node for the computer name, and then expand the node for Web Sites. 3. Right-click SharePoint Central Administration, and then click Properties. 4. On the SharePoint Central Administration Properties page, click the Directory Security tab. 5. In the Secure communications section, click Server Certificate. 6. On the Web Server Certificate Wizard, click Next. 7. Click Assign an existing certificate, and then click Next.</p> <p>Note If you already have a certificate for your portal site, it is recommended that you assign that same certificate to SharePoint Portal Central Administration. If you do not have a certificate, you must request one and then assign it. 8. Click the certificate you want to use for SharePoint Portal Server Central administration, and then click Next. 9. In SSL port this web site should use, type a port number. Note This is a temporary port number needed to configure SSL. When you set the port for SharePoint Central Administration, you must use a different port number. Caution If you set this port to 443 and the portal site is also using 443, you will receive errors. It is strongly recommended that you choose a port number not used by the portal site. 10.Click Next. 11.Click Finish. 12.On the Directory Security tab of the SharePoint Central Administration Properties page, in the Secure communications section, click Edit. 13.In the Secure Communications dialog box, click Require secure channel (SSL), and then click OK. 14.On the SharePoint Central Administration Properties page, click OK.</p> <p>This document is created with the unregistered version of CHM2PDF Pilot</p> <p>After you configure SSL, you must run the following command (once only for the server farm) from a command prompt: %programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\BIN\stsadm.exe -o setadminport -port port -ssl</p> <p>Note If you use the same port that you used when configuring SSL, you will receive an error. If this occurs, run the command again using a different port number. Running this command will change the URL of the root central administration page (stored in the configuration database) to https:// instead of http:// to reflect that SSL has been enabled on the virtual server. To secure portal sites, an administrator can also enable SSL on virtual servers that host portal sites. After you update the port for SharePoint Portal Server Central Administration, you must modify the shortcut in your start menu to use the new port. 1. On the taskbar, click Start, point to All Programs, point to SharePoint Portal Server, and then point to SharePoint Central Administration. 2. Right-click SharePoint Central Administration, and then click Properties. 3. On the SharePoint Central Administration Properties page, click the Web Document tab, and change the port in the URL to use the updated port. 4. Click OK.</p> <p>Use SharePoint Portal Server Data Backup and Restore To back up or restore an image successfully, the following accounts must have access to the directory containing the backup files: The service account for SQL Server must have write access to the directory.

What's new for site users? The following are a just few of the new features for users of SharePoint Portal Server: Areas You can organize information on the portal site by using areas. If you find a useful listing missing from an area, add a listing for a content manager to approve. You can add a listing to more than one area on the portal site. News SharePoint Portal Server enables you to highlight information, such as announcements and other key company information, by adding listings to the News area. A news listing can be either text-based content or a link to an existing news item, such as a press release or an article on a news service. Personal sites My Site is a personal SharePoint site that provides personalized and customized information for you. In addition, My Site provides quick access to things you need to do your work such as links to documents, people, or Web sites as well as alerts to track changes to content within the portal site and your organization. From My Site, you can also update your user profile and share links with other portal site users. User profiles Easily find information about people, their documents, and their shared links. Alerts Get alert results sent to you in e-mail immediately or in daily or weekly summaries for portal site content. You can now add alerts for people, lists, list items, and the Site Directory in addition to news, areas, topics, search queries, documents, and backward-compatible document libraries. Alert results are shown in an easy-to-read HTML format and now identify whether the alert result is sent because content changed or was added. You can manage all of your alerts from the My Alerts page. Lists and views Because SharePoint Portal Server is built on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, you can add both predesigned and custom lists to all SharePoint sites. For example, you can create a picture library to share a collection of digital pictures or create an issue tracking list to maintain a history on a specific issue. You can also use calendar views for any SharePoint list that has a date and time column. In addition, you can add attachments to list items, including HTML pages, documents, and images. Simple site creation and page customization By using Self-Service Site Creation, you can create SharePoint sites such as team sites or Meeting Workspace sites on demand without involving the IT department if you have the necessary permissions. In addition, you can customize a page by changing or adding Web Parts. Each list and library on a portal site is a Web Part, enabling easy customization and personalization using the browser. Search Faster results and improved relevancy ranking enable you to find the information you need easily. Search results now include people, picture libraries, list items, and user profiles. If you search for an image, you'll see a thumbnail view of the image; if you search for a person, you'll see his or her personal profile. You can also group search results in different ways, such as by author, site, date, or area. From the search results page, you now can save a useful search to the My Links Web Part on your personal site. Site Directory The Site Directory provides a central location from which to view and access all Web sites associated with a specific portal site. You can also create sites based on Windows SharePoint Services or add links to existing sites. In addition, adding a site to the Site Directory is a quick and easy way to include content in search results.</p> <p>This document is created with the unregistered version of CHM2PDF Pilot</p> <p>What's new for content managers?

You can save sites as templates to capture best practices or to define a consistent look and feel. Areas The portal site is a hierarchy of rich subsites that enable content managers to add lists, images, and documents to one or more areas. Content managers can approve or reject items that are submitted to the area. In addition, security can be managed at the area level, allowing only specific users to make contributions or changes to the area. Portal site map Manage portal site areas and topics by dragging them in the portal site map in your Web browser. Create, move, rename, and delete areas by using the portal site map.
