SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 Upgrade Step by Step

Hello everybody,

Today I share the way how to Upgrade SharePoint 2010 to 2013. It is extreme exciting.

Requirement environment in machine which have SharePoint 2013:
Window server 2008 R2 SP1, SQL server 2008 R2 SP1, SharePoint 2013 but I recommend Window server 2012, SQL server 2012, SharePoint 2013. In my case is Window server 2012, SQL server 2012, and SharePoint 2013 server.

We have a SharePoint 2010 Web Application. We want to upgrade it to SharePoint 2013
Open SQL server 2008 and backup database you want
Backup Full
Backup successful, then copy it to SharePoint 2013 machine
At Window server 2012 machine, open SQL server 2012 and restore database.
Create new Web Application with port 8080
Delete existing content database (Go to Application Management > Manage content database)
Click on your content database
Click to checkbox Remove content database > OK.
Add new content database to SharePoint 2010 content database, but you will get Error, require you must Test-SPContentDatabase and Mount-SPContentDatabase
Open SharePoint 2013 Management Shell: Input command
Test-SPContentDatabase -name WSS_Content -webapplication http://dell6530:8080
Result as:
Mount-SPContentDatabase -Name WSS_Content -WebApplication http://dell6530:8080
Refresh Content database page, you will see new content database is added
