Default Migrating from ISPConfig 2 / Lenny to ISPC 3 / Wheezy

Hello and once again, thanks for your work on this project.

I have a server which should have been upgraded a long time ago and is now out of hand. There are websites on it, all configured with ISPC 2/Drupal, along with databases, email accounts and everything.

From the info I gathered here and there, I understand that ISPC2 is not runable on Wheezy, and won't be supported anyway so I have to move on.

There doesn't seem to be much information available, and I really could use some advice on the best way to set things up.

Building a new server with Wheezy and ISPC 3 is no big deal, thanks to the great tutorial Falko wrote.

Problem is with migration : I understand there is no upgrade path between ISPC2 and ISPC3 and never will be, but is there a way to move data (mean : database, mail accounts, and all logins) in a secure and exhaustive way between instances with different versions ? A bit of manual manipulation is not a problem, but redoing everything from the UI seems tedious.

Any bit of info about this would be invaluable.

Thanks in advance.

Wow. That's one helluva a news ! So I guess I'll postponed my migration process until then. Do you have any details about what it will be able to do ? Any page I could check ?

Anyway, thank you so much for this. This tool will be a big big relief !

The script will do a complete server migration, from a old ispconfig 2 server to a new one with ispconfig 3. Just dns settings zones are not migrated at the moment.

We will prepare a page with detailed information and a migration guide when the tool is finished.

Please tell me it won't require physical access to the machine and work on VPS ?

A vm is fine. It just needs root access to the server or vm.

Yay ! That's really really great. If I can help with testing or whatever, feel free to ask. I'm nowhere near your technical level, but well.

Can't wait to see this thing working. Any date planned yet ?

No, but I expect it to be available in january. The tool is developed by a external company, so we will not be able to offer it for free as we have to pay license fees to the developers for each copy. But the price will be moderate

As far as the price is decent, which I don't doubt, count me in. Hope it won't be too high though, because it remains kind of a one shot tool.

Mean : decent for a small business like mine .
