Best way to move websites from Windows Server 2008 IIS7 to Windows Server 2012 IIS8

I am thinking about using the IIS7 export feature. Seems like you can export/import an entire site or the entire IIS server. Has anyone used this? I am better off just creating the sites manually and copying over the files?

I typically do it manually but you could use the web deployment tool.  It should work with IIS 7 also.

Thanks, I will try the export tool and see if that does the job. I will do one site at a time and report back.

Thanks, it worked fine. So far, I imported and exported 2 sites without any problems.
