Selecting a Migration Tool Installation Option

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

The Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool supports four options you can choose from when determining how you want to migrate Apache Web sites to IIS. Your familiarity with the Linux or Windows operating systems and the access that you have to the Web servers involved in the migration will determine the process you should follow to install and then run the tool. In some cases, you might not have unrestricted access to the Web servers because another group manages the Apache servers or the Web servers are behind firewalls that prevent FTP traffic.

To install and run the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool for any of the installation options, you must be able to:

  • Log on to the source server with an account that has root-level or super-user access.

  • Log on to the target server with an account that is a member of the local Administrators group.

In addition, when you select the intermediate computer installation option, you must be able to:

  • Log on to the intermediate computer running Linux with an account that has root-level or super-user access.

  • Log on to the intermediate computer running Windows with an account that is a member of the local Administrators group.

Table 7.2 lists and describes the installation options for the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool. Read this table to select the installation option that best fits your needs.
