Migrating Data from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005

You are able to convert a SQL 2000 database to SQL 2005 by using the backup tool from within the WebControlCenter.
  1. Login to the WebControlCenter at https://www.webcontrolcenter.com/customer.aspx
  2. Go to Database -> MS SQL 2000 -> MS SQL Export Database. This will create a .bak file that contains all of the database information.
  3. Create an SQL 2005 database with the same database name and login information as the SQL 2000 database.
  4. Use the restore tool in the WebControlCenter Database. Go to MS SQL 2005 -> MS SQL Import Database, then select the .bak file that was created.
  5. Once the conversion has been completed, update the code on your site to use the SQL 2005 database, then delete the SQL 2000 database.

Please note: there is a fee associated with performing backups and restores through the WebControlCenter.
