How to move a site from sandbox/project to live
If the destination site doesn’t have the virtual directories (test this by going to http://mysite.truman.edu/web – should get blank page, not 404), log on to the server, open a command prompt and run
when prompted, enter mysite.truman.edu
In Sharepoint Designer (or Frontpage), open the destination site and publish a backup to the filesystem
Delete everything from the destination
Open the project site and publish to the destination
Find the row with the siteurl of the project site and change it to be the destination site.
Set the security for admin subweb:
Click Tools > Server > Permissions…
Click "Change subweb permissions"
Select "Use unique permissions for this Web site" and Submit.
Click "Administration" at the top of the screen
Click "Change anonymous access settings"
Turn Anonymous access OFF and SUBMIT
If moving from one templated version to another, you need to run http://mysite.truman.edu/web/resetapplication.asp to pick up the new Site ID, header, etc.
