    I've read countless threads with migration problems (MySQL indexes and auto increments being lost, etc) and I'm a bit worried since I will be moving 130 domains in the next two months.

    Has anyone actually been able to do this properly? Any other "gotchas" to pay attention to?

    Moving details:
    Source: Plesk 7.5.4 (Fedora Core 2 @ GoDaddy)
    Destination: Plesk 8.1 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 @ Rackspace)



    Thanks!

    If you can, get a 2nd server and do the migration in parallel. Thats the safest way to do it, and you'll avoid any downtime.

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    Yeah, that's exactly how I'm gonna do it. It's just that there are so many things to check that it's overwhelming. That's why I was asking.

    Easyist way

    We did ths easily by migrating to cPanel. Worked great and they gave us a 'free' support ticket just in case anything popped up - which it didn't. No more Plesk spam or upgrade disasters.
