WSS3: Move to hosted external server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We currently host a WSS3 intranet on the LAN and are looking to move it to an External public facing server.  The current scenario is WSS 3 fully patched on a Windows 2008 Web Server (IIS7).  The SQL database is on a different server running SQL Server 2005/Windows Server 2003 R2.

    The proposed scenario is to move the WSS/SQL setup to a hosted server pair (both Windows 2008 Standard), one of which hosts 2 websites (IIS7) and the other is a SQL Server 2005 (which one of the websites uses).  On the webserver there is no Default Website as it was removed by the developers of the first website and I understand WSS3 uses the default website and should be installed before other sites.

    Firstly, and I correct in my assumptions and secondly is this possible without disrupting the currently sites on the hosted servers.



    Regards Tony
