What must I do whit this one? or must I use this file to complete step 5.
So extract it and edit the files from it?
TIA, think I will need some more help by getting it right but, still am going for it.......
You need to back up and restore the all the mysql stuff, unless you want to lose the client databases. I forget if you need to do this for the mysql database itself, but I'm sure till will fill in that blank.
For step 5, as till said:
5) copy all users and groups of the websites (users are web1, web2, ... , groups are client1, client2, ..., etc.) from the files /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group and /etc/gshadow from the old server to the new server. Copy only the lines of the users and groups, not the whole files! and make a backup of the files before you change them.
All the other files will be remade by a) the fresh install of ispconfig and b) the resync.
