Hello everybody,

we are running a wss 3.0 (on a w2k3 server - 32bit) using a central MS SQL-Server 2008 Standard (on a w2k8 r2 enterprise - 64bit). Now we would like to find out the best way to upgrade to sharepoint 2013. The stsadm-backup generates a 32gb-backup-file.

Now I would like to ask, if you can advice a best-practice way to upgrade or shift to Sharepoint 2013.

Thanks a lot and with beste regards
David

Unless you use a third party application, you'll have to upgrade to 2010 before you upgrade to 2013.  You'll need to stand up a Foundation 2010 farm, and upgrade your content. You can actually do an in-place upgrade if you'd like, by installing 2010 over top of 3.0.  You'd then need to do the same process to get to Foundation 2013, only you can't do an in-place upgrade.  The 2013 server would need to be separate, on a separate db instance as well.
