This post provides a high-level step by step guide on upgrading a SharePoint 2010 site to a SharePoint 2013 (Customer Preview) and as with any Beta release is subject to change. For further information on planning and upgrading content and services to SharePoint 2013 you can visit the recently published TechNet site here.
Also make sure to check out Bill Baer's great post on Upgrade, and special thanks to Bill for sharing his custom solution used for this post J.
Any idea on how (if supported) we can go from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2013?
My understanding is that you need to upgrade to SharePoint 2010 first and then upgrade to 2013.

Can I upgrade from Office SharePoint Server 2007 to SharePoint Server 2013?
Not directly, but you can do what we call a “double-hop” database attach to upgrade from Office SharePoint Server 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010, and then from SharePoint Server 2010 to SharePoint Server 2013. Back up your content databases from 2007, set up a small, temporary farm with SharePoint 2010 (you can even use virtual servers if you don’t have space, and a trial version), and attach and upgrade them to 2010 there. Then, set up your destination 2013 farm, back up the 2010 databases, and attach and upgrade them to SharePoint 2013.
This upgrade path also applies to upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2013 – you must upgrade to SharePoint Foundation 2010 before you go to SharePoint Foundation 2013.
Great post Ali! Im about to run an upgrade in my lab. Im curious as to what version of SQL you went from/to. Im on SQL 2008 R2 and thinking of migrating to SQL server 2012. Was that part of your upgrade here?
I thought that you needed to have Office Web Apps Server on a server that does NOT have SharePoint Server 2013 on it!
Great Post thanks. I have also outlined what is needed to do to upgrade a 2007 or 2010 Visual Studio to a SharePoint 2013.
Thanks Ali. Good article. Helps a lot.
