I have MSSQL 2008 web version that is part of a website, and just got a new server.  Now I need to migrate my whole website to the new server. So that means I need to move the database, but I want to do so in a way that lets me keep my existing server live for now, while I setup mail, IIS, etc.  Is there a way I can configure SQL on my existing server to "push" all changes to my new server so that I know the DB on my new server will always be current and ready for live use?

Hi,
You can use Sql Replication service to acheive this task.
The Microsoft documentation for replication is quite thorough. I would suggest using the following link as your starting point and then selecting the track/s that are most appropriate to you i.e. Architecture perhaps initially.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms151198.aspx

You should eventually get to specific replication implementation scenario tutorial that is appropriate for your environment.

There is a replication wizard as well to simplify the task.
Follow the below URL for the wizard:
