And suddenly it went wrong. While i was configuring our new enviroment i needed to reboot the server so the latest windows patches where applied. After the system rebooted i went on creating a new site in the sharepoint 2010 enviroment, just clicked siteactions “new site” give it a name and url submit…. wham, “an unhandled exception occured in the Silverlight Application” uh what? The Silverlight interface would’nt submit anymore, not in any site collection. It was possible to create a new site from the “Manage content and structure” so permissions are allright.
You can customize the edit form and new form in Sharepoint 2007 (or WSS 3.0) with SharePoint Designer. If you didn’t start from a copied file and just edited the original forms and it fails then you are pretty screwed up. Luckilly there is a way to fix it : http://hightechdave.com/2010/09/22/recover-newform-aspx-from-the-dead-in-sharepoint-2007/
When uploading, and yes even downloading, you can run into the 50 mb filesize limiter. There are some different ways to fix the issue. I tried to collect them all. This is regarding the MOSS enviroment and WSS 3.0 version.
You should start adjusting the maximum filesize setting from your central administration. “Central Administration” > “Application Management” > “Web Application General Settings” (Located under SharePoint web Application Management). Here you can change the default value to the preffered new one.
