About the SharePoint team Web site database

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

A Web site based on SharePoint Team Services relies on a SQL server database to store information such as:

  • List data, including information about Events, Announcements, Tasks, and Contacts.

  • Document library information about properties, such as document title, date, and size.

  • Discussion and subscription data, such as subscription information and the actual threaded comments from Web document discussions.

  • Security data, such as who is allowed to view and change site information.

Each virtual server has its own database. Webs and subwebs on the same virtual server share a database, although their information is stored in separate tables within the database.
