How old? What version of Zope / Python show up on your brwoser when you visit the "Control_Panel" in the ZMI? > Any help would be greatly appreciated. The process should go something like this: 1. Get a "new" installation of Zope (preferably the same version of Zope / Python as the old box) running on the new machine, and verify that you can manage it. 2. Get any supporting Python libraries or extensionsn in use on the old machine installed on the new one. To determine them, look in the 'site-packages' directory of the standard Python library, as well as the 'lib/python' subdirectory of your Zope "instance home". 3. Get the add-on products used on the old box installed on the new one. Look in the 'Products' subdirectory of your Zope "instance home". 4. Finally, shut down Zope on the both boxes. Copy the 'Data.fs*' files from the 'var' subdirectory of the "instance home" on the old box to the equivalent 'var' directory on the new box. Start Zope on the new box, and verify that the instance looks OK> 5. Now, start upgrading the various bits of software incrementally on the new box, beginning with Zope and Python, then the libraries, and finally the Products. Test the site after each upgrade.
