I am completely new to DotNetNuke and ASP.NET. I've been asked to take over an Intranet project that a former colleague created and aside from a little documentation that he left, I'm a little lost.
Our current Intranet was built using ASP.Net in Visual Studio.Net. We used Microsoft's IBuySpy Portal as a base and added customized, purchased components to make the site more useful to our company (document modules, contacts modules, etc.). The backbone
of the site is a SQL database, and the site is hosted on our Intranet server using IIS. I had nothing to do with the setup, so I'm not sure if this was a sound way to do things, or not. And I'm also just reciting what I've read in his documentation.
My boss would like to upgrade our Intranet and my research into IBuySpy led me to DotNetNuke. Is DotNetNuke considered an upgrade to IBuySpy? If so, could anyone point me towards documentation on how to upgrade? The only install instructions that I've
found in the info about DNN is "find an ISP that hosts DNN sites" which doesn't work for us since we're hosting this internally.
Thanks for any info that will get me started.

No. It was originally an offshoot of the IBuySpy portal example, but has grown way beyond that now.

Docs are in the download section of the DotNetNuke.com site. Along with the code. Try it to see if it works for you, but don't expect a no-brainer upgrade.
