In Windows Explorer, locate the Iismigrationwizard_setup.exe file that you just downloaded, and then double-click the file to start the file extraction process.
NOTE: The Iismigrationwizard_setup.exe file is a self-extracting executable (.exe) file. If you run the file, you put installation packages and documentation on your computer. Each of these packages requires additional installation, as described in the tool documentation.
To install the UNIX component for computers by using Apache, follow these steps.
NOTE: Before you start the installation, you must have Perl installed.
Log on to the source computer as a root.
Open the folder in which you extracted the IIS Migration Wizard files, and then use file transfer protocol (FTP) to transfer the IISv5MigrationUtility-ApacheSource.tar file to a temporary folder on the source computer.
On the command line (either locally or from telnet), type the following command:
tar -x < iisv5migrationutility-apachesource.tar
In the temporary folder in which you extracted the .tar file, type the following command:
Follow the instructions that appear on your screen to select the configuration file and to turn on the source service.
After you install the source component and the target component, you can start the migration process.
NOTE: Before you start the migration process, you must have the default Web site configured and running.
To run the IIS Migration Wizard:
Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Microsoft IIS v.5 Migration Wizard.
After the IIS Migration Wizard starts from the source host, click Next.
After the IIS Migration Wizard confirms that the IIS Migration Wizard has already been installed on your computer, click Next.
Click the option that indicates that you have already installed the source software on your source host, type the address of the source host in the Computer box, and then click Next.
Type the password that you specified when you installed the host component, and then click Next.
Enter the root program folder for Apache, and then type the name of the folder that contains the configuration files in the Server Mask box (typically, the configuration files are in the Conf folder).
When you are prompted, select the server content, the settings, and the MIME information that you migrate for each virtual server, and then click Next to start the migration process.
The migration process takes between a few minutes to over an hour depending on the size of the Web site that you are migrating. When the migration is complete, the wizard displays a list of warnings and any additional steps that you must do to complete the migration.
To save the activity log or the migration archive file that contains migrated content and settings, click the appropriate link at the bottom of the wizard page.
