Hi guys,

I'm currently using Intranet on Windows 2000 Server, and there are some applications using PHP and MySQL that employees are using.

Now, We need to migrate all the applications to a new Windows 2008 Server, This is the first time I'm going to do it.

I have an idea but I'm looking for an advice before to start to configure it, so i ask you guys for any advice.

Thank you in advance.

you need to look at the applications themselves as far as compatibility
even the background applications like php and mysql - do you plan to upgrade that also and look at migration and testing if the newer versions will work with the application or going to keep the older version and test on the new server first before production?

Thank you seth,

Ok, I need to upgrade that but it will be little by little, so the first step is to configure the 2008 server for the intranet.

The old server will be alive while I finish to upgrade and test all the apps.

So for now, I need to know how to set up the intranet and display just one page.

Thank you again

start with installing IIS role
don't know the details of how everything is structured but you can copy one site or section over just to get it to show on the new server as an initial test
