We are in the process of migrating .net web applications from (Server2003-IISV6.0) to (Server2008R2-IISV7.5). I was wondering what is the correct method to migrate them? I am thinking to copy all the folders and files to the new server and configure IIS
from there. I am sure there are better ways. Please advice.

Well, first off, we have some things we must consider.
First, how many web applications are you migrating?
Secondly, have you considered a network load balancer to distribute the load during heavy times?
Third, will you be using a firewall (F5 Big IP) to do fail over operations during upgrades and failures?
Fourth, if you do this distributed hosting, do you have a place on the network to keep the shared IIS configuration files?

The things that you mentioned are over my head. Let say there is one web application. I just want to get the site up and runing for now. I do it on the development server first.

Ok, in that case, the method you first mentioned would be just fine. I was under the impression you had a much larger configuration you were referring to.
