    Hi All,

    After 4 days of grief I have finally migrated servers. The psarestore succeeded and I have all client data, config, emails, db's etc..

    However psarestore didnt restore the website content for each domain or even the folder structure in


    Is this normal? I thought the website content was supposed to be backed up aswell. Is there a way to backup and restore just the website content?

    For the record my backup and restore commands were

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psadump -F -f - | split -b 1000m - /dump.*
    /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore -f dump.* -m map_file

    Thanks in advance

    You should perform the migration with cat, rather than an asterisk:

    cat dump.* | /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore -f - -m map_file -s shell_map

    I believe you need the shell map too, which you didn't mention.

    Hi Cranky, Thanks for the reply. You are correct I didnt add the shell_map command. I ran the restore with your example and as expected the shell_map file was created ready for editing.

    However, my shell_map file only contains one line as below

    /bin/false => /bin/false

    and I am not sure what to add/edit. Can you help?

    Ignore that. There was no need to edit the file as the locations haven't changed.
