I have a 2.1.1 install running. I want to migrate to 3.1 but I wish to do so by moving to a new server in the process.
Please confirm my approach or otherwise share some advice:
(1) take a full backup of the DB on server 2.1.1
(2) restore full backup of DB on server 3.1
(3) download and install WP 3.1 on server 3.1
(4) walk through setup and have it update/upgrade MySQL DB form 2.1.1 to 3.1
Will this approach essentially work?
