    I'm transferring my hosting from one server to another, both are running plesk 7.5 on linux and I have root access to both. What is the best way to move over all email, databases, files, settings, etc to make the transition as smooth and quick as possible?

    Thanks.

    Edit: perhaps 'migrate' is a more appropriate term than transfer.

    OK after more and more searching I think I can use some complicated combination of the psadump and psa restore utilities, but I'm not entirely confident using them especially with something so sensetive as this.

    This is from the FAQ:
    This command is executed from the server that I'm transferring TO (the new, blank machine), correct?

    And since I'm accessing the new server from my local workstation via ssh I want to make sure that things won't get killed if I'm unexpectedly disconnected. I don't think backgrounding the task is enough. Any suggestions?
