I have an existing Act Premium for Web installation running two databases for 6 users on version 10.0.2.191. I have purchased new Act 2013 licenses and would like to deploy ACT on a different server- Ideally an existing app server running Windows 2003 sp 2 and SQL 2008 standard. What is the best process for bringing up the new version of ACT and importing\preserving the 2 existing dtabases that will continue to be used?

What would I do ...
1. Backup both databases (DataBase1 and Database2)
2. Install ACT! 2013 on the new server - initially with Instance in SQL Server 2008 R2 Express
3. Upgrade the instance with the SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard (If you really need this version)
4. The backups (Database1.zip - Database2.ZIP) restored with a different name in the new Server
This way- the PAD files will be routed to the correct database
OLD SERVER Database1.PAD Database2.PAD
NEW SERVER Database3.PAD Database4.PAD
I'm no expert but is an Idea
