Default Migrate Sites From 2 to 3

So I know you can't upgrade a server from ISPConfig 2 to 3. However, is there any possible way to move sites from a server running 2, to a server running 3?

We've recently upgraded our servers and installed 3 on a new one. We want to kill the old server but need some way to migrate those sites and accounts.

Forgive me if this has been pointed out somewhere already but I couldn't find it.

You can simply copy over the files to the new server. You might have to modify configuration files (e.g. paths, database details, etc.) though.

You can create SQL dumps of your databases and then import them into empty databases on the new server: http://www.howtoforge.com/faq/6_3_en.html

Hey Falko,

Thanks for the response. Can you clarify a bit more for me? I can understand moving the site content and exporting and importing the mysql databases, but what about user email accounts?

Were you meaning to create the site on the new version 3 server and then move the site content? That makes sense. I guess I'm just hungup on moving all the email accounts.

Thanks!

As explained in many posts, you can not migrate a ispconfig 2 server to ispconfig 3. This means if you want to use a ispconfig 3 server for your sites, you will have to create all sites and user accounts in ispconfig 3 manually. Mail accounts can not be moved directly, you can just try to copy the maildir files of every account and fiolder manually to the new locations on the new server and dont forget to chnage all owb´nerships to the vmail user.

Hi Till, I'm going to tackle this tomorrow, but was wondering if you could clarify the maildir setup for ISPConfig 3. Is it the same as ISPConfig 2? Not sure what you mean by "vmail" user for ownership under ISPConfig 3?

Thanks, Danté
