    I'm considering moving my box to another one.

    The old one has Plesk 7. Can I export the configuration... Domain configs, limits, e-mail addresses, passwords, etc - And then import them on the new box with Plesk 7.5 Reloaded?

    Is it possible?

    In theory, you can use Plesk migration manager on the 7.5 server to "import" the data from the 7.0 server.

    Is that just a button within the Plesk 7.5 control panel?

    How do I set up the Plesk 7 server to allow this?

    Yes, the button in 7.5 server. You don't need to 'setup' the 7.0 server for anything ... just work from the 7.5 server. You'll need to allow SSH traffic between the 7.0 and 7.5 servers if you restrict it, otherwise it'll work fine.

    Is there any other way to do this, the migration managerdoesn't seem to work here, I'm trying to migrate from a server wits Plesk 7.1.6 to a server with Plesk 7.5.1.

    The error message I see when trying the migration manager is :
    "Failed to upload the migration agent
    Cannot transfer agent to the remote host
    Lost connection with the remote host"

    I urgently need to migrate all accounts on this server without resetting all user passwords. I also tried the backup utility, but this also isn't a solution because it doens't allow you to restore to another server...

    Anyone can help me ?

    OK, I found out what went wrong:

    Updating to 7.5.2 already helped a bit ... then I recieved another error message :

    When using a normal username:
    "Failed to upload the migration agent
    Cannot transfer agent to the remote host
    Fatal migration error"
    --> Not enough rights

    When using root:
    "Failed to upload the migration agent
    Cannot transfer agent to the remote host
    Unable to connect to host pooh.hosting-it.be: you have specified incorrect username or password
    --> No direct root logon alowed via ssh

    I temporary allowed root to logon directly via SSH and the migration worked :)

    How do you enable the old server to accept SSH connections?
    I am getting the same error you were getting.

    yes, the black window is the command prompt:

    type:

    pico /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    make the changes
    save file

    type:

    service sshd restart
