Moving to a new server
I'm not using ISP Config for now but I have a question.
If I have a dedicated server on debian 6 with ISP Config and many site configured.
And if I want to move to debian 7 when it will be released, is it possible to do it easily ?
For example I make backup on debian 6, I save this backup on an other FTP. I reinstall the server with debian 7, I import the backup.
It's possible to do it without reconfiguring all my site in ISP Config ?

I hope i'm clear else i'll try to explain myself better.

No need for a reinstall, you can just update Debian 6 to Debian 7 with apt.

Oh it's a good news
Because I was waiting for debian 7 to change my server.
Now I think I will take a server with debian 6 and update it to debian 7 when available

Or just get a server with Debian 7 straight away. Most places will install the next Debian release for you just as easily as the current stable, you just need to ask.
