Upgrade 3.x -> 4.0 and server move


I didn't find a specific article or post for this, so I wanted to see what was best.  Any input appreciated.

We will be upgrading to FB 4.0 soon, and would also like to move it to a new server. (New and old servers both have win 2003, SQL 2000).

I see a few options and wonder what will be the easiest and safest:

1- Follow the 'move FB to another server' article, then upgrade to 4.0

2- Install 4.0 on the new server, and then migrate the data from the old 3.x server.

3- other ideas?

Get it all up and running as if it were a new install. Make sure everything works. Don't bother installing licenses.

Next move the fileuploads directory from the 3.0 to the 4.0 machine.

Then copy the database. Point fogbugz 4.0 in the SITE screen to the database. It will prompt you and upgrade the database.

That should be all you need!
