1.  How many websites are on the server?
2.  How many Application Pools are on the server?
3.  With what technology are the sites built?  ASP.NET, PHP, plain HTML?
4.  Is there a database involved with the migration?
4a.  If yes... where is the database server, locally installed or on a remote server?
5.  Is the web server accessible from the Internet or is this an internal site only?

There any several methods to migrate, but first a little info is required to help find the most efficient method to use.

Hello,
Their are two websites on the server. Five application pools. They are built on ASP.NET. Database is locally installed. Websites are internal sites.

The database is set on a remote server. The commands work and I moved they sites and apppool over. Along with the directories.
