Plesk 7.5 to Plesk 8 - then restore backup file??

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by Dirky@, May 28, 2006.

    today I have been batteling with 1&1! I have a root server with them, FC2 and Pleask 7.5, today it went down for some reason I have not been able to find out as yet.
    They have re-imaged it with FC2 and 7.5 again!
    I have an option to image it with FC4 and Pleask 8.

    My problem is this.
    I have a domain backup for my main domain, can I restore this domain to Plesk 8 without too much bother? Or should I stick to 7.5 ?

    I also read these backups are encrypted and cannot be restored to another server, will I be ok with this seeing as how the server has been re-imaged?

    Many thanks for any help!

    You cannot restore Plesk 7.5* to 8.0

    I got this response from the Support Team of Plesk:

    Plesk 7.5 backups cannot be restored on Plesk 8. You can do one of these:
    - restore them on another server with Plesk 7.5 installed and then migrate to Plesk 8.
    - reimage the server to Plesk 7.5

    Actually you can restore most backups successfully, but only via SSH.

    Also, another alternative is to get a cheap root VPS for a month and use the PMM to migrate all your 7.x domains to the 8.x VPS and back to the dedi PSA8.

    Good Luck ;)

    Thanks guys. When you say via SSH, do I use the pleskrestore command? I think it was/is psarestore under 7.5 ?

    yes the via SSH the pleskrestore command.

    PM me if you would like to restore a psa7.x backup and then migrate to your new psa8 machine at a reasonable price.
