Moving Site from Sharepoint 2003 to MOSS 2007

  Asked By: Alexandria    Date: Oct 08    Category: MOSS    Views: 4741

I'm new to Sharepoint and I'm running into this problem and I
hope that someone can help me out. At the office, we're currently
running two different Sharepoint server on it own. We decided to get
rid of SP 2003 and have only MOSS 2007 version running. We want to
move everything from SP 2003 to MOSS 2007. What is the best way to move
site(s) from SP 2003 to MOSS 2007? Can someone please help.

The only way to move content via OOTB methods is by upgrading. There
are some 3rd party apps (like AvePoint) which will allow you to move
items in a more granular manner.

the OOTB methods are the way to go. I would probably
make a SQL backup of the content database (if I recall correctly, that's
the only one that really means anything, as the prof and config can be
re-created), then upgrade it in an dev environment just to make sure.

Just make sure that if you have customized webparts, deal with those

As the others have said the upgrade process is the way to go but the
problem you may encounter is the look and feel of the sites may take
some additional effort to them to look like 2007 sites. Something to
consider is the CorasWorks design migrator tool. We have used it
quite a few times for both migration and mass rebranding of MOSS
