    Any ideas about migrating from Plesk 7.5.4 on Red Hat 9 to Plesk 8 ? Would it be best to do a full backup and restore on Plesk 8 on a new OS ?

    Ideal scenario for your upgrade.

    1. Get a new server and install Centos 4.3 on it.

    2. Install Plesk 8 on this server.

    3. Get a temporary Plesk key from Sw-Soft

    4. Use the migration manager on the new built server to migrate all of your clients to this server.

    5. Point your DNS to the new server.

    6. If all looks good you can scrap the old server and switch your old IPs to the new server as you had them before.
