    Hi,

    I am moving a Plesk server to a new data center. Can any one suggest how to i move the data to new server ?

    Using psadump to backup all accounts, then restore them on new server is correct way ? Or there an easy way for moving all accounts in a server to new server ?

    Thanks,

    Yujin

    Hello,

    There is an easier way .

    Install the same os , plesk packages on the new server.

    copy(or rsync) the home, /var/qmail/mailnames to the new server
    copy the password files over to the new server (here you may have to force reinstall the plesk so the uids gets corrected)
    dump the databases and restore on the new server.
    mailman should be copied there as well.

    Anyway if you copy the right stuff directly all would be ok.

    Migration is good as well but it takes time and could fail at some point.

    Hello,

    The home directory:

    /home/httpd/vhosts/
    or
    /var/www/vhosts/
    depending on how is your plesk set up

    /var/qmail/mailnames/


    from etc :

    passwd
    passwd-
    group
    group-
    gshadow
    gshadow-
    shadow
    shadow-


    if you need old plesk key :

    /etc/psa/psa.key

    The crontab files:

    /var/spool/cron

    That is about it.
