You can use the Archiving Configuration page to enable archiving globally or for a specific site.

In order to configure and use archiving, you must first install the Archiving Server and the archiving database. For details, see Deploying Archiving in the Deployment documentation.

To configure archiving support, you must enable support for each type of archiving you want to support, as well as configure and, if appropriate, assign policies and configure other options to control how archiving is implemented. For details, see Managing External Connectivity in the Operations documentation.
