    Hello

    I have just recently gotten a new server with plesk 10.3.1, (and the old one with plesk 9.5.2 is to be formated and used as a backup server only, without any plesk system or similar of some sort).

    I have manually moved every client, since there was a lot of new settings to play with in Plesk 10, but i have one i would like to migrate completely somehow, in order to preserve all the mails, email addresses and their passwords for them, since they use IMAP and i don't wan't to trouble them with backing up all emails and re setting up all their email accounts again. Can i do this migration for one domain only and get every email migrated also ?

    And if i try, will it delete anything on the old server (in case something goes wrong) or does it just transfer the files and work with them on the new server - and all i have to do is change the DNS settings?

    You can just create full backup of this domain and then restore this backup on destination server.

    I just tried it, and it keeps failing..

    I use a "personal ftp repository" so that both servers can get access to backup.

    But when i use the backup manager on the newly created account (in the users controlpanel) i get told that i need to upload it to the server repository which i try, but then it gives me the error: "Error: The backup you are trying to import does not match the user type 'domain'"

    Anything else i could try ?
