Migration Manager question

    Newbie here asking a newbie question.. :)

    Our organizaitons website is currently being hosted by some 3rd party hosting agency, managed with Plesk 7 or 7.5.... We recently acquired our own web server so that we can host our own website. We have Plesk reloaded (7.5.3) installed on the RHEL 3 box.

    My question, with migration manager, is... does it simply copy all files, db's, users, etc... or does it move all files from one server to another?

    We still need to get a couple of ports unblocked by our ISP and get the IP addresses changed with our name registrar, but I would like to have all files copied over in advance of that. On the other hand, I don't want to bring down the current site...

    If it does a copy, no problem... I will just run MM to copy over the bulk of the files, and again when our server goes into production. If not, I will have to leave it until the end..

    Anybody here have experience doing a hosting migration of this sort?

    Migration copies all the files, and leaves source server untouched.

    ps: be aware, migration requires root login to the machine you copy data from.
