    windows to windows migration

    Hello,

    I had a couple of noob questions regarding windows hosting. We have an existing client who has a legacy site developed using asp.net

    they have asked us to take over the site for them and we would are not in a postion refuse. so here are my questions. we have built and hosted many many websites, but all on linux.

    1. when i login to the existing hosting panel, it says parallels panel, no mention of plesk anywhere. Is this a different product from plesk?
    2. my new provider is providing me with plesk 11, will I be able to migrate without isues, or is there something i need to watch out for?
    3. The existing site does not have a database. but it has a ms-access database, will just copying over the files from the httpdocs folder work, or do i need to do something else. the site is quite small, just uses 250 mb or so.


    Thanks in advance

    As long as it is windows, you should be fine.

    Just make sure not to cancel the old account until you properly test it in the new server to make sure all the required software are there.

    Parallels is the company owning Plesk control panel.

    To migrate website using MS Access database, you can just upload all files to httpdocs folder.
