Migration procedure question...

    Ok... I am about to move up from a "virtual dedicated" server to a real dedicated server. Please share your experience with me with using the Migration Manager. If you would, please address the following items.

    1. If I have the same version of Plesk on both boxes along with their patches and updates, BUT maybe have a different MySQL version installed... will I have issues? Let's say I am going from MySQL 3.2 to version 4.

    2. Is there a diffrerence that could be noticed wth the OS being a different flavor of Linux? From Red Hat 9 to Fedora 2?

    3. Since the new server will have a different IP scheme, would it be possible to simply back up the old domain accounts to a FTP server and then "restore" them to the new server?

    4. Other pitfalls that I might watch out for?

    Thanks again everyone!
