Hello Experts,
I have been tasked with moving/transferring a website, that is installed in a machine using IIS6 to a machine that has IIS7.  How do I do this?  What are the steps that I need to take?  Is it just as simple as moving the files from one machine to another, and placing the files in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot?

Thank you very much in advance for your help,
mrotor

Fortunately for you this process is rather easy and there is a step by step on iis.net

pay specific attention to the inputs and  configs to ensure any needed info is properly migrated.
