So what do these databases do ? Well :
- Sharepoint_AdminContent_ stores the information related to lists, document libraries, tasks and so so on of the Central Administration site.
- Sharepoint_Config_ stores information about the configuration of your Sharepoint farm. Things like servers and their role are saved here. If the farm involves a multi server environment (with web front ends, content and search servers) then how the whole farm is configured is held here. BY default each server in the farm checks with the configuration database every 30 seconds.
- WSS_Content contains information related to lists, document libraries, tasks, wikis, blogs, structure details, security information and so on for your Sharepoint user site.
- WSS_Search_ contains search metadata, history log, search log and so on that is used for the inbuilt Sharepoint search functionality.
Remember there is only a limited amount of things you can do with the SSEE instance but the GUI certainly makes it easier and now at least you have some idea as to what each database does!
