im running a website with umbraco 4.5.2 with specs as windows 2003 server, IIS6 and .NET v4.0 on a dev environment. say, if i like to migrate the entire website+database to a server with 2008R2, IIS7 and .NET4.0. can i just go ahead and copy the enire web folders and the database to where the new server points to? could it be that simple? any advice is appreciated.
I've not done this but really can't see why there should be any problems, especially as you're already running .NET 4.
There are differences in permissions & app pools in IIS6 & IIS7 but obviously this is the case with any site, not just umbraco ones. So the only issues I can see is making sure you get the permissions set right.
Obviously you'll want to test the new install before taking the old site down :)
it sounds quite reasonable to me as well.. but unfortunately, i've got 3 errors (taken from the event viewer) after setting up the site as follows, please get me some input..

further point to address here that this is a brand new site, which never existed before.
So are you moving to code over? Or fresh install onto windows 2008?
Based on your errors I would doubel and triple check permissions and application pool is integrated and .net 4.
i copied the entire website over and its not a fresh installation.
is could there be any guildes that i can compared against my current configuration ?
If this is your first install on this server you might want to do a 100% clean install to work out the tweaks, then use this as base for the project you want to move over.
Here's an install guide for 2008 http://our.umbraco.org/wiki/install-and-setup/how-to-install-umbraco-on-windows-server-2008
A quick way to check your permissions are correct is too to the following URL
ok.. now i get HTTP Error 503. after logging in to the backend.
i forgot to mention, the folders/files are located in a shared storage and im not able to grant permission to IIS AppPool to it. but alternatively i have an service account which has access right to the folder.
silly me.. a bit embarrassing to tell but its because of the permission to the ApplicationPoolIdentity is never granted. instead, i replaced it with the service account... its all good now.. thanks for the clue..
I normally get that when either the ASP.NET user or NETWORK SERVICE doesn't have full control pemissions or a TRUST LEVEL issue.
Are you able to find what trust level you are running in on the server.
Simular issue as above.I also ran into this problem with an Umbraco 4.6 site (after windows updates). The AppPool kept craching which gave a 503 error.Fix: delete files from AppData/TEMP/ClientDependency + ExamineIndexes and recycle the AppPool./Stefan
