I have a Microsoft SharePoint server 2007 installed in my computer. I’m considering of upgrading to the 2010 version as I find the 2007 version with lots of weaknesses, such as in search and being dependent with other Microsoft products. Will I encounter any problem if I upgrade to 2010 version? What are the features of the 2010 version not found in Microsoft SharePoint server 2007? Lastly, how am I going to do the upgrading? Please give me the step-by-step process.
Upgrade from Microsoft SharePoint server 2007 to 2010 version
I found a compilation of benefits comparison between SharePoint 2007 and 2010.
Upgrading from SharePoint 2077 to 2010 can be done in two approaches: database attaches upgrade and in-place upgrade.
A database attached upgrade will let you move your content to an entirely new farm or hardware. In an in-place upgrade, all SharePoint sites are upgraded on the same hardware.
The actual step by step upgrade process is lengthy, but I've managed to find a guide for you, which can be found here
