    Below is an overview of our current infrastructure, please let me know if my understanding of the migration process is correct (will this work?!?):


    Windows Server 2008r2 x64, IIS 7.5, .NET v4, SQL 2005 Express (localhost)
    Currently our project is hosted in webroot/staging


    Windows Server 2008r2 x64, IIS 7.5, .NET v4, SQL 2005 (farm)
    Site needs to be published as root of the default site

    From what I've read, migration is a simple matter of copying the project files from staging into the web root of production and modifying the connection info for the database server.  Is this correct?  Will there be any path issues to consider as we're moving from a virtual folder in staging to the web root in the production environment?

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Since both of your environments are using the same IIS servers there should be no additional configurations that you have to do. Just make sure that the application pool identity has read rights over the website structure, as well as full control over the App_Data directory and its content.

    Best wishes,
    Radoslav Georgiev
