How Can I migrate my current ISPCONFIG3 to Another Server?
 
Just Copy dbispconfig, /var/vmail; /var/www and the passwd/group files to other server?
Thanks in Advance!

Yes, this should work. But you should not copy the complete group files, just copy the users and groups that were created by ispconfig from the files /etc/group, /etc/shadow and /etc/passwd from the old to the new server. Make sure that you copy the /var/vmail and /var/www files with preserved permissions. e.g with "tar pcfz ....".

I tried to use 'tar pcf' but that doesn't work, the permission of all folder is changed to root user.

Any help?

Rsync?

Thanks!

Try
tar -pczf

Hi Till and Falko, I used rsync for copy /var/vmail & /var/www and that solves my problem, the folders/files mantains the right permission.

ISPCOnfig3 server now has been migrated!

Thanks !!!

I am doing a migration and it certainly isn't as simple as moving /var/vmail & /var/www. By doing only that you don't move any mysql db's located at /var/lib/mysql. I have also migrated sites-enabled and sites-available located /etc/httpd/conf/ this shows another problem with log files so I migrated /var/log/ispconfig/ everything works fine but when I try to make changes or add sites the changes are not taking place on my server only in mysql. Any ideas?

there are certain configuration such as ispconfig password for mysql that are located tin /usr/local/ispconfig would it also make sence to migrate this folder? I am assuming there are somethings you would not want to move anyone with a better understanding of v.3 know?

Dont move these folders as they contain passwords specific to the local installation. If you would move them, you will break the setup.
