There's a saying in Dutch (in my best English translation): I don't see the forrest because of all the trees.
Untill now it's not clear how to do a "good" migration to a new server. Is it an idea to create a sticky about this?

*I copied (with rsync) all the data from
(databases were not available on new server when I did this, so I dumped the db's on the old server and copied them to the new server with:
mysqldump --opt --user=root --password=xxxxxxxx --all-databases | gzip > mysql_backup.sql.gz
) For some reason the dbispconfig database was not imported so I imported it by hand via phpmyadmin.

Do I need to copy more or is this enough??
Is there anything I missed?
