One old SBS 2008 with WSS 3.0 and 2 sites, internal SQL 2005. Need this to move to a 2012 R2 and SQL 2008 R2/2012.
OR is it possible to move this to Office 365 ???

I have tried everything i find online, but i cant get it to work. export/import, detach/attach db, preupgrade check etc. etc. Since its a WSS i have tried to get it to work on a Sharepoint Foundation 2010 SP2

Question 1.
Is it possible to get it to work on a Windows 2012 R2 server, and what version of Sharepoint?

Question 2.
Is it possible to move WSS 3.0 out in the cloud (Office 365). Today there is two custom sites on IIS 7.0 that use WSS 3.0, i have tried some software to move it out there, but Sharepoint in Office 365 isnt like WSS 3.0 and IIS on a local server at all?

Hi,

as far as I know, there is currently no SharePoint version available which is supported to run on Windows Server 2012R2.

Second, if you plan to move:
SharePoint 2010 is more comparable to 2007/WSS3 than 2013 to 2010/WSS3.
Of course SharePoint Foundation 2013 has some enhanced UI and other features, but to run propertly you need an admin who knows what he does.

A complete move from WSS3 to SharePoint online could be really complicated.

Third:
For SharePoint Online you have to pay per user and month. For a local SharePoint Foundation you "just" need the proper Windows Licencing (which you already should have).
And in SharePoint Online you are limited in custom functionality as most coded changes are not supported.
