    Need assistance on Classic ASP migration.

    Hi,
    I am a junior programmer, and my company is going to separate into two companies.
    So there is a need for us to migrate current website which is written is Classic ASP to a new company's server.
    I would like to know on how to migrate an Classic ASP website to another server?
    I am totally new for this.
    I need some guidance on this issue.


    Thanks,
    Arafat

    You should be able to download the ASP files from the old server and upload to the new server. I use just FTP which works well for me.

    Maintain the folder structures and you should be fine.

    If the site uses databases then you'll need to copy/configure them too.

    Is the new server a Windows server? (If it's an Apache server or a Linux host then you'll not be able to run ASP code anyway, and so would need to migrate the site to another scripting language like PHP - that is a whole different ball-game).

    depends on what type of database is in use. There are different tools available depending upon the type in use. This may be a better question for the folks who answer questions about databases:

    It may even be something that would benefit from engaging external technical experts/consultants.
