Lesson 1: Manage Site Collections and Content Databases

In Chapter 1, you learned that site collection is a group of SharePoint websites—a top-level website and, optionally, child websites—that share common ownership and administrators, as well as common settings, such as quotas, locks, and site use confirmation and deletion. When you create a site collection, you must assign a site collection administrator. All other site collection properties can be left to their default values, or can be configured to your specifications.

A site collection is hosted in one content database. The content from all sites in the site collection is stored in that content database. A site collection cannot span more than one content database. The content database is the core component of storage management, including backup and restore.
