    Hi,

    I have this error migrating from plesk 12.5 to plesk 17:

    Code:
    Failed to fetch basic information about resellers, clients and domains data from source servers
    Cause: Command execution failed on the local server with non-zero exit code.
    command: rsync -l --chmod=Fu=r,Du=rwx,go= -e 'ssh -i /usr/local/psa/var/modules/panel-migrator/sessions/20161101090640/ssh-keys/id_rsa.XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX -p 22 -o PasswordAuthentication=no -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o GSSAPIAuthentication=no' /usr/local/psa/var/modules/panel-migrator/sessions/20161101090640/ssh_upload.1 root@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:/tmp/version
    exit code: 255
    stdout:
    stderr: Permission denied (password).
    rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
    rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(226) [sender=3.1.1]
    
    That is a critical error, migration was stopped.
    IP was changed to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

    I see this solution https://kb.plesk.com/en/129028 but the solution is install the latest MU, I have the last version.

    The two possible reasons from the top of my head:
    1) You are trying to migrate using non-root but some other user account;
    2) Key authentication is disabled in the sshd configuration (otherwise you should get "stderr: Permission denied (publickey,password)" error).

    Hi,

    it seems that there is a bug in this feature:

    [+] A new mode was added to migration from Confixx so that mail users will be able to log in to their mail accounts on the target server with their original usernames and passwords.

    - Server Configuration:

    Source Server: Debian / Confixx 3.3.9

    Target Server:
    Ubuntu Server 16.04.01 LTS
    Plesk Onyx v17.0.17_build1700161028.14 os_Ubuntu 16.04
    Plesk Migrator 2.3.2
    Dovecot IMAP/ POP3

    During migration from Confixx the mbox is identified corretly from the Plesk Migrator Script
    2017-01-05 12:58:05 DEBUG Defined a Confixx POP3 mbox for this email: 'web41p1'

    Result:
    - SMTP Auth ist working with User web41p1
    - IMAP / POP3 is not working

    Can you have a look on it? This feature is citical for us to migrate old confixx accounts without doing changes at the customer side.


    Thanks & BR

    Plesk Migrator 2.4 released!

    What's new:

    • During migration of mail content from a custom panel, it is now possible to define configuration settings like for a subscription content. In particular, it is possible to specify files or directories that should be excluded from copying or to define advanced file mapping.
    • A subscription belonging to a reseller could not be synchronized with an add-on service plan after migration. (PMT-3413)
    • Post-migration checks did not detect error messages or warnings on a web page in case when the HTTP code and the title of the web page were identical on the source server and on the target server. (PMT-3388)
    • During migration from a custom panel, post-migration checks were run for an enabled subscription with disabled main domain. As a result, error messages were reported. Now no post-migration checks are run in this case. (PMT-3378)
    • During migration from a custom panel, post-migration checks failed if a subscription had an add-on domain with an IP address other than the subscription’s IP address. (PMT-3371)
    • Post-migration checks did not detect some typical PHP error messages or warnings on web pages. (PMT-3389)
    #### Linux
    • Migration could not be started on CentOs 5. (PMT-3417)
    • An unclear error message was displayed during migration if the configuration files of migrated applications contained non-unicode symbols. As a result, the adjusting of all other applications of the migrated subscription failed. (PMT-3398)
    • An unclear error message was displayed during migration if WordPress configuration files contained non-UTF-8 symbols. As a result, the adjusting of a particular WordPress instance failed. (PMT-3400)
    #### Windows
    • Plesk Migrator can now be configured to detect the scriptiong settings (PHP version, ASP.NET version, ASP) of a subscription on the source server and migrate them properly.

    • If the web.config file of a web site contained XML namespaces, the web site could stop functioning after migration. (PMT-3387)
    • Migration could fail if many (more than 10000) application files were changed during adjusting. (PMT-3409)
    • After migration from a custom panel there were no write permissions in the document root of a migrated subscription, it these permissions were not set explicitly in the hosting description. Due to this issue, the permissions settings sometimes were lost during migration from Plesk Onyx to Plesk Onyx. (PMT-3407)
    • Web Presence Builder was not registered in Plesk after migration to Plesk for Windows 12.5 or Onyx. (PMT-3369)
    • Some errors related to Microsoft SQL Server were not reported in Plesk Migrator log. (PMT-3362)
    • If migration of a Microsoft SQL Server database failed, Plesk Migrator added a database dump to an existing dump file during each new attempt to migrate, thus increasing the size of the dump file. (PMT-3411)

    @eug,

    A couple of remarks or questions to function as feedback:

    - migration of individual domains is not or does not seem to be possible: this would be rather important when hosting site mirrors on another server, (and)
    - no explicit button to get on the start page: quite handy when running multiple (unfinished) migrations and/or when wanting to do some re-syncing
    - migration of percona to mysql databases will not work properly in exceptional cases (not a real issue, this is minor)

    I noticed that the Plesk Migrator does not always get updated directly, when a new version has been released.

    The latter is propably not related to the Plesk Migrator extension, but more or less related to "extension management".

    Can someone have a look at that?

    Regards......

    The feature is implemented explicitly for migration of website (its content + DB) into an individual domain in Plesk. Here is documentation Web Site Migration . Please clarify what exactly is not possible or does not seem to be so.

    The scenario of site content synchronization is covered for WPT 2.0 site yet. Thank you for the suggestion, we will think to enable this for any site (for example, as CLI command that can be added as a cronjob) in further Migrator versions.

    If we are talking about site [content] import, the process is always individual for each pair of src_site:dst_domain_in_Plesk as there is required to enter (at least) ftp credentials of source site which are supposedly different for different source sites.

    In further release we will make the process easier for admin - there will be a button inside Plesk Migrator on the same level with "Start a new migration" that will allow admin to choose inside which domain one would like to perform the migration of external site content & DB and then it will lead to the 1st screen of site import inside this domain.

    Please describe in more details in which exceptional cases this does not work with Percona?

    Extensions are automatically updated to the latest version once a three day. You can check for which extensions there are available updates in Extensions -> Settings -> "Check for updates".

    @eug,

    I will respond to your post via a PM, as soon as I have some time left.

    By the way, did you state that extensions are updated once per three days??

    Regards....

    Good day,
    Moved the site to another hosting. At first I decided to try to transfer using Website Importing in the Plesk panel of the site, but then transferred the site manually via FTP.
    Can you please tell me, how to stop the process in the Control Panel - Website importing, and it's spinning - Info: Website content import is in progress.

    Hi Jangali,

    Please tell why you decided to stop website import by Plesk and decided to perform it manually?

    For now, there is no such function as site import cancellation. This feature will be added in further releases.

    Hi. eug,
    I decided to move the site manually, because in fact a few hours nothing happened.
    Now it will spin - Import procedure?
    How does that affect the site?

    Hi jangali,

    If there is endless migration operation for too long time, that means the process in backend has died. Just does not mention it keeps spinning on the screen.

    We know about such bug with site import stuck, it is recorded as PMT-3599. In nearest Plesk migrator release planned on this week, there will be included fix for the bug. Then you (Plesk admin) will need to apply migrator update and you will need to re-run site import for this domain on the screen that you showed above. When it is completed with no error, it will show "green" status on the screen.

    Also, in nearest Plesk Migrator updates we will improve error reporting for site import so that there is visibility on what is going on. Please check for updates.

    ToDo
    • When migrating from Courier to Dovecot, the IMAP-subscriptions are not migrated. These should be placed in the file /var/qmail/mailnames/*/*/Maildir/subscriptions, but they are NOT

    It could be as easy as
    Code:
    sed '/^INBOX$/d;s/^INBOX//g' courierimapsubscribed >subscriptions
