Restoring backup from Plesk 9.5.4 to a new Plesk 10 installation

    Hello, everyone!

    I've got to update a Plesk installation from 9.5.4 to 10.x. So, since previous SysAdmin didn't leave a develepment machine, I installed a virtual machine using VirtualBox running Centos 5.2 and Plesk 10 to try it under a development environment before updating on production server.

    I want to upgrade Plesk 9.5.4 to Plesk 10.x on production server but I'd love having a B-Plan if it fails when I use the CLI updating tool.

    Plesk 10 installation seems to be done perfectly without minor issues.

    Now that computers circumstances are clear my questions are:

    1º If I use "pleskrestore" tool to restore a previously well made backup from 9.5.4 to 10.X, Will it do the job?
    2º Will 9.5.4 license work under 10 versions?
    3º If I use the parameter "--license" while restoring, will it cause an error on "Production Server"?
    4º Can they (licenses) co-exists temporarily while I test that my services work properly under Plesk 10?

    Note: If this works properly I will try using a newer CentOS version, of course. ;)

    Thank you very much and my apologies if I've done too many language mistakes.
