Define "old"

MVC3 runs, there is even project template in Xamarin Studio/Monodevelop.
MVC4 runs with a bit tweaking, problems with some combination of 
features like bundling and SignalR 1.14 - my latest experience from Jan/Feb.
MVC5 runs with more tweaking. Google is Your friend. I had no time to 
test it.

vNext - plan to test in next weeks.

 1. Knowledge how to configure mono and http server (apache, nginx, etc).
 2. scp to copy files
 3. if necessary minor tweaks of web.config

Everything depends how much fancy things were used in application. The 
more cool stuff the more problems to expect.

I work in Visual Studio in virtual machine on mac. Test it in VS switch 
"desktop" to mac and test on mac with xsp.  When xsp works for some time 
and am ready for staging server I copy to server and test.
