Migrating Web Site Content to IIS 6.0

Updated: August 22, 2005

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

The migration of your Apache Web site involves migrating both the Web site content and its configuration. Based on the installation option you selected, the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool prompts you for the information required to perform the migration of the Web site content.

To run the tool, do one of the following, depending on the operating system on the computer:

  • On Linux-based computers: From the Linux shell, change the current folder to the folder where you installed the tool, and then type perl aiismt_main.pl.

  • On Windows-based computers: At the command line, change the current folder to the folder where you installed the tool, and then type aiismt.

After the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool starts, it prompts you for information. Table 7.4 lists the information that the migration tool requires to migrate the Web site content.
