migrate 9.5.4 server from old to new 9.5.4 server

    hi there,

    i am planning a migration from an old plesk 9.5.4 server to a newer server hardware using the same plesk version, both servers are going to be live to help migration.

    Total server is taking 55GB

    how long is it estimated to backup the server to a remote server sitting on the same network and restore it back to a working state? using the "backup manager" either cli or gui.

    is it advisable to backup restore the whole server? or is it better to backup and restore small chunks? e.g 5-10 clients at a time? i have total 110 clients with 170 domains on my server!.

    any advise will be much appreciated.


    P.S. what does configuration only do? will it backup/restore all clients, domains, emails,email aliases and databases with thier usernames and passwords? just without any data? it would be very interesting if it is so!
