As you don't actually tell us what you use your current server from we can't really say.

There's a big difference if you're using it as an AD server with File Sharing and user authentication / permissions, VSS versioning, user provisioned reverting etc.

If you're using it as a web server for static HTML pages then there's nothing frightening.

If it's PHP then you'll need to check for anything that has paths as you'll not have C:\ etc.

So decide what you're actually asking

The secret to any migration is to TEST, TEST, TEST!

Unless your site is using anything Windows/ASP specific then it should be fairly easy to migrate. If it's database based then if you're using MSSQL Server then it may be harder. As I said, TEST, TEST, TEST

Why would you 'sort' CentOS 5.10 for it...when it's OLD. The latest is 6.5, so starting off with an old (and soon to be UNSUPPORTED) version of an OS is a bad idea from the start.

And from what you posted, you have a fairly-standard web server. Apache comes with CentOS, as does PHP. The YII framework (from what I can see), can also be installed on Linux. Since you don't provide ANY details except for "I am using it for hosting hrm website.", there's not much we can tell you past what TenTenths said already. ASP pages aren't really going to work since they're for Microsoft.
