We are phasing out a server that is running sharepoint 3.0. This server is running windows 2003 32 bit. Our sharepoint database is being hosted by sql server 2005. What is the best way to migrate our sharepoint over to a windows 2008 R2 server? I read information on the link below, however I just don't know which path would be the most ideal for my situation.

Is SharePoint and SQL on the same machine?  If not, the process is quite simple.  If so, the process is a bit more involved.  Let me know.

yes, sharepoint and sql are on the same server and BOTH need to be moved to a new server. I take it the link you have provided would suite me just fine? Thank you.

Well, since they are on the same machine, it may be a bit different.  Did you deploy as a standalone install, or did you install as a farm?

I didn't set this up so I can't say for sure. How can I tell? Sorry, I am not extremely versed in Sharepoint.
