  • Can I ask how you're migrating content between the two platforms? If you're using a third party utility it may have some useful features that can assist with this. Feb 9, 2015 at 11:59

The .stp file made by SP2007 is much different from a .wsp file. You have to recreate the site templete in SP2013 and the only way to do that is:

  1. Create a blank site from your template in SP2007
  2. Upgrade that site to SP2010 (since there is no direct upgrade path from 2007 to 2013)
  3. Upgrade that site to SP2013
  4. Save the SP2013 site as a template, and now you have the .wsp you can use in O365.
