SBS 2008 Sharepoint to Sharepoint 2013

We are moving from a SBS 2008 server to a Windows 2012 server and have Sharepoint 2013 installed on it.  How would I go about moving all the content from the WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint 2013.  Could I just backup up the Sharepoint data and restore it to Sharepoint 2013 and keep the same companyweb site active on the new server.  We will be removing the SBS 2008 and creating a new clean domain also.

You will first have to install WSS 3.0 on your new Windows 2012

After that you can run the preupgrade check

Then you need to upgrade to 2013.

we ended up using a 3rd party solution and it worked perfectly to do a backup and restore to sp 2013.

Awesome.  Out of curiosity, which tool did you use?
