Upgrading to 8 and Upgrading servers

    This is a 2 part question and I promise it will be my last for the day.

    Part 1: I honestly didn't dig for this so please excuse the question. When you upgrade an older server to PSA 8.x, does the upgrade move your data around from the /home/httpd/vhost to the new /var/www/vhosts format? Or just leave it as is?

    Part 2: I have some older servers that I would like to replace with newer, faster servers with more storage (so I can house more domains for the $$$). Does anyone have any suggestions on moving all that data to a new server quickly and painlessly? How does one easily move 200+ websites with 30GB+ data? Has anyone accomplished it and got a system?

    1) Upgrades don't move your vhost location. You can change it yourself if you want to, there's an article on it in the knowledge base.

    2) Use the Plesk Migration Manager.
