In this chapter, we have reviewed how to migrate your non-CMS site to Content Management Server as well as reviewing some key points when you are upgrading from CMS 2001. If you are migrating your site from an unstructured to a structured environment, you must spend more time up front examining your site. We pointed out several tools that you could use to document your site, such as an information architecture, a functionality inventory, and a content inventory. In addition, we discussed two approaches for importing your content, understanding content workflow, defining the workflow roles, and training both your content contributors and your technical staff.
If you are upgrading your site from CMS 2001 to 2002, there are some additional tasks that you must be aware of. First and foremost, backing up your existing implementation is key to a successful upgrade. We also discussed where to find your old templates and how to convert them to .NET templates.
