Moving wiki pages library from Sharepoint 2007 to 2013

Upgrade_SharePoint_Graphic

Moving documents from one library to another is not very easy in Sharepoint, and much less from 2007 to 2013. Here you have some tips that were helpful for me, and it made me save money.

1 – Save the library as template (STP)
2 – Convert .STP to .CAB
3 – Extract files
4 – Edit manifest.xml, and change “ProductVersion” from 3 to 4
5 – Create the new STP doing:

  • cmd
  • go to the extracted folder and execute
  • makecab manifest.xml DocLib.stp

6 – Upload the new STP into the catalog /_catalogs/lt/Forms/AllItems.aspx
7 – Create the APP in Shp2013 using the template. In this step the APP is not listed as an APP so we have to go directly to the creation page.
In my case:
/_layouts/15/new.aspx?CustomTemplate=DocLib%2Estp&FeatureId={00bfea71-c796-4402-9f2f-0eb9a6e71b18}&ListTemplate=119
