How do I export/archive an individual site?

Exporting or archiving a site will create folder containing archive files which can be used for offline data retention or for transfer to another instance of Sakai. By default, site archives are placed on the file server in the following location: $CATALINA_HOME/sakai/archive/

Note: Exporting/archiving a site copies all of the site content into an archive file, but does NOT copy user data.

Go to Site Archive.
