I'm trying to migrate a site from Linux to Windows... I've installed SS onto a windows 2008 server using the Web PI and with the clean install I can display the standard home page and can access the cms. However, I need to copy an existing SS implementation and msSQL database that was copied from a Linux machine. I've done as instructed on a number of forum threads and simply copied the mysite folder content as well as themes and assests folders across, however when I copy the _config.php file (in the myfiles folder) from the existing site (overwriting the newly created one) I get a 500 Internal Error - "HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request."
I guess it's something to do with the mySQL database because the db name, username and password are specified in the existing _config,php file from the Linux server, and I have a .sql file that was copied from the Linux server, but I don't know how to install/implement this on Windows. Can anyone give me step by step instructions on how to do this please? Or better still tell me what the cause of my problem is. Thanks in advance, as you can tell this is new to me...
