We want to migrate Tridion 2011 SP1 to WEB 8, with exist content together. Since WEB 8 require different OS and DB version. So the main steps we prepare to do is like below:
Install WEB 8 Servers & DBs;
Backup 2011 DB and restore it at new DB environment;
Run SDL WEB8 powershell script to migrate the DB structure;
Install SDL WEB 8 content Manager and all other service/roles;
But we notice there are a lot of physical files for schema and template, like Carousel.xsd for schema and CT Carousel.dwt for template. Is it ok we just copy them to the new WEB 8 server or we need to run some other tool to migrate them?
