One last question,

If I keep the same domain name, can I safely move over the SSL certificate from the old server to the new one?

Are they going to the same directories? How should I go about doing this?

Not necessarily - the web ID might differ.

Okay, this is a more general question but what is the purpose (and do I need to port them over) of these files:

1. courierimaphieracl
2. courierimapkeywords
3. courierimapsubscribed (I figured this one out, it's subscribe to certain subfolders.. and is needed)
4. courierimapuiddb
5. courierpop3dsizelist

Regarding the email accounts, in ispconfig 3, there is no separate username for email accounts as the email address itself is the username, this means that after you recreated the email mailboxes, you will have to tell your users that the new username is the email address and the password will remain the same if you copy it as explained above.

When it comes to the mailbox contnst, ispconfig 2 and 3 use both courier with maildir format, so you can copy the content of the maildir directories to the the new server. Just make sure that all maildirs in ispconfig 3 are owned by user and group vmail instead ofy a individual system user, so just chown them after you copied the files.
Hello Till,

i'm migrating old ISPC2 server to ISPC3 and have 2 questions:

1. I'm using multiserver setup on ISPC3. After i copy password hash from /etc/shadow to master database on ispc3, is there any way how to make slave mail server synchronise all db changes (new passwords) ?
I don't want to click to every mail account and change for example quota to have pass changes synchronized

2. all passwords in ISPC3 are starting with $1$ which has to be MD5, is it right?

some accounts in ISPC2 which password hasn't been changed for couple years doesnt start with $1$, the new ones do
Had ISPC2 been using some different encrypting earlier?
does it mean i'm not able transfer those accounts NOT starting with $1$ ?

I don't knot passwords corresponding to this old hashes, co i can't test

1) Changes that were done in the mysql db manually dont get synced to the slaves. Either you do the changes with the ISPConfig remote API so that ispconfig recognizes them or you will have to edit and save every user manually after you changed the settings in mysql.

2) The passwords are in crypt-md5 format. Older ispconfig 2 versions used a different format, but the old format should work as well as it has a different prefix which shows the Linux crypt library that a different encryption mechanism is used.
