    I have a plesk 8.0.1 in redhat EL 3

    I would like to migrate the whole plesk setup (pages,DBs, IPs, certificates, everything!) to another server for some days in order to format the first server and install newer OS and then put the plesk CP back in the first server (everything back again including the license key!)

    I have already setup a second server with plesk 8.4.0 on CentOS 5.2 with a temporary license key for 14 days that parallels provided me

    I am OK with most prequisities in KB article #2112
    http://kb.odin.com/en/2112

    I have a question though on step 6 of this KB article regarding the default character set of mysql
    The output of the shell command specified in this article is the one shown there (latin1 everywhere) but through phpmyadmin in the web interface of the control panel I get this:
    These are from the default plesk 8.4.0 installation. Nothing has been altered
    Would the above utf8 settings be a problem with the migration process??

    Another question is will there be a problem if I migrate from a plesk 8.0.1 system to a plesk 8.4.0 system?

    Also what can I do about the IP addresses of the two servers? The final server must have the same IP addresses as the first server. But the migration is done through network so the two servers can not have the same IP addresses at the same time! what do I do about that?

    In the final server (the one that I will format and install the new OS) I would like to use the license key that I use now for our 8.0.1 plesk (not the temporary one). How can I "extract" the license key so as to use it on the new server I will setup?

    Is there anything else that I should be careful about during the migration process?

    thank you for your time

    the migration process seems to work ok but after trying to migrate a few domains i get this error

    Is this error a result of what i quote below about the mysql charset?


    my clients are greek so many things in databases maybe in greek charsets

    any ideas / solutions?

    thank you for your time
