That moment when they ask you to fix Sharepoint issue and you have null experience in it!

    How about being 'promoted' to the SharePoint admin because you were the only one not actively working on a project at the time? Yea, that's me also with null experience.

    SharePoint really isn't that bad once you embrace it is a very complicated system. Take a piece at at time and understand its just a big web app with a SQL server back-end.

    - Powershell is your friend

    - People who developed SharePoint are not your friends.

    - Weird crap happens in SharePoint, ULSViewer is the only way to view SharePoint's logs when errors occur.

    @PaperTrail I am the only developer in the company, the Sharepoint developer left a long time ago before I even join.

    Hint: they built a web part/web service in .NET and add it to SharePoint and one component is broken now :)

    So, I started to investigate .. no source code could be found :)

    Admin dashboard needs a guide to know what everything does.

    And much more .. but it will be fixed on Sunday after I finish enjoying my weekend and clearing my mind.

    I agree with you, SharePoint developers aren’t my friends ..
