Question Moving ISPConfig3 from Ubuntu to Debian

Hi.

I want to move all my server contents from Ubuntu to Debian. I have tried searching the forums for a solution to this. But all I find is and old thread for ISPConfig2, which does not seem to be valid for ISPConfig3.

Can someone please tell me step-by-step what to do? I'm running latest version of ISPConfig3.

Thanks in advance for any assistance

That's the guide for installing ISPC3 on Debian. What I want to know is how to move an existing ISPConfig3 installation from one system to another, in this case from Ubuntu -> Debian.

Thanks anaway though

Sorry for reviving this old thread, but now I really need to do this.

Is there anyone with experience or knowledge out there who can point me in the right direction please?

Thanks for any help.

EDIT: I have a Debian server running and ready, with freshly installed ISPConfig3 on.

/Jim

There should be no difference if you move from debian to debian or from ubuntu to debian.

1) Install ispconfug 3 on the debian server. It has to be the same version then on the old server.
2) copy all lines of the web* users from /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow to the new server.
3) copy all lines of the client* groups from /etc/group and /etc/gshadow to the new server.
4) Move the directories /var/www and /var/vmail to the new server (with preserved permissions).
5) copy the ispconfig database to the new server.
6) copy the website databases to the new server. Then copy the user and db entrys for the client databases from the mysql.dser and mysql.db database tables to the new system.
