    Need to move web server from 2008 to 2012 server. Is it difficult?

    My Server 2008R2 is now getting unstable so I need to move the in house Websites (IIS7) to the new Server 2012. I'm thinking of copying over the inetpub folder to the new server but could it possibly be that easy? I've already setup the role so IIS is running. SQLServer is running on the old server but I believe it's from a website that is no longer used that provided a picture gallery. This unfortunately is my first time setting up a Website since IIS first came out on a Windows Server that didn't have numbers after Server. And I've never migrated a web server before.
