    Hi, I have a server (windows 2003) with Plesk 8.1.

    And I have a client with some domains in a server (windows too) with Plesk 7.5

    And we want pass some sites from his 7.5 plesk server to my 8.1 plesk server.

    I tried to make a backup from Plesk 7.5, but when I try restore it in Plesk 8.1 I can't. Plesk 8.1 tell me that the file is not a PSA valid. Why? Its not compatible versiones backup 7.5 and 8.1

    How can I pass sites from 7.5 to 8.1 easily? they are diferent servers, it is not a migration.


    thank you (and sorry for my english)

    I just had a similar problem, was unable to restore a backup made with Plesk 7.5. The Plesk backup-conversion program did the conversion with no problems. See this link for instructions: http://en.webk.net/plesk-8.2/17423.htm

    The only change I had to make to the backup_convert command was to leave off the .py extension.

    Yew I need conversion utility, from 7.5 plesk to 8.1 plesk, but for windows plesk version.

    When i try to restore from 8.1 the 7.5 backup file this is the message error:

    "Error: The file "name_file_backup" It is not a dump file valid PSA."

    thanks

    It looks that psa file is getting corrupted during transmission.
    Try to check it on the source host first, I mean open it with restore utility
