Migrate sites the easier way

20 July 2010 by James Crawshaw

Currently on Microsoft Windows 2003? Running IIS 6? If so, methods of migrating to newer operating systems can include laborious reconfiguration of websites and migration of data.

However, a little known tool from Microsoft does speed this process somewhat, zipping up all data and settings in to a single file which can be transported to your new server running IIS7 and imported in very few clicks.

Hopefully something which will make all our lives a little easier – especially if you aren’t already with us and are looking to move to the fastest network in the UK!

For information on the migration tool see: https://www.iis.net/download/WebDeploy
