Shrink sharepoint database

A Sharepoint Database can become big and have unused spaces. To shrink database go to CA-> Health Analyzer:


See if there is a list item about unused space in db under the Availability. Click on Repair Automatically in the opened Modal Dialog:


Change CA port number

In order to change port number for the Central Administration site, run this cmdlet:

Set-SPCentralAdministration -Port 1337

You can set any number between 1023 and 32767 except 443.

Get all comments

If you try to get comments quantity for a url, you may wonder, why there is only quantity of the comments which the current user has posted:

public int GetNumberOfNewsPageComments
        (SPSite currentSite, string pageUrl, int max)
    var serviceContext = 
    var socialCommentManager = 
            new SocialCommentManager(serviceContext);
    var comments = socialCommentManager
            .GetComments(new Uri(pageUrl), max);            

    if (comments != null)
        return comments.Length;

    return -1;

The solution is to impersonate the SPSite object with an account who has the rights to manage social data. Give this permission to the account in CA – Application Management – Service Applications – User Profile Service.
