Migrating Web Sites Manually
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
Earlier in the process, you decided whether to migrate your Web sites with the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool or to migrate them manually. If you are unable to use the migration tool, you must migrate manually, or use existing provisioning or setup scripts. For more information about how to determine whether you can perform the migration with the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool, see Selecting a Migration Method earlier in this section.
When there are provisioning or setup scripts for your Web sites and applications, use these scripts to install the Web sites and applications on the target server. These scripts might require modification to be compatible with worker process isolation mode, which is discussed in Evaluating Application Changes Required for IIS 6.0 Worker Process Isolation Mode earlier in this section.
Because the scripts install and configure the Web sites and applications, no migration is required. In this case, run the scripts to install and configure the Web sites and applications and then proceed to Configuring IIS 6.0 Properties later in this section to continue with the process.
Figure 6.6 illustrates the process migrating Web sites manually to IIS 6.0.
