Upgrade Microsoft Project Server 2010 to Microsoft Project Server 2013

You can upgrade to Microsoft Project Server 2013 from a Project Server 2010 deployment that integrates with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 (TFS) by following the instructions provided in this topic.

Note Note

You cannot upgrade directly from Project Server 2007 to Project Server 2013. Instead, you first upgrade the app-tier and web-tier servers to Project Server 2010, then upgrade the required databases to Project Server 2013. For information about how to upgrade from Project Server 2007 to Project Server 2010, see the following resources on Microsoft TechNet:
