Migrating to new server. Help with mail.
I am now setting up a new vps and i want to move everything from my old to my new.
I have set-up everything manual, like account, websites, ftp account and everything, but now i want to move all e-mails from my old server.
I am using imap to all accounts so i need to save everything from the server.
Anyone know how to do this? (Using dovecot)
Thanks! & Happy new Year! :)
I have just been doing the same thing for about 40 users, and the easiest way for me was.
On target server:
I created all the email users in ISPCONFIG.
Then using WinSCP on a windows box, I copied over the vmail/maildir directory for each user from source server to target server. Or you could archive to a file the expand again on target server providing the directory structure is the same.
Then once the copy to target server is complete, set owner/group to vmail (5000) for all files and sub-directories in /var/vmail.
Sart dovecot on target server.
I didnt have the passwords for most of the users so i just dumped from source msql database and then imported into the new ISPCONFIG database.
