Is there a way to get around that?
For example, by creating a new website in ISPConfig on the new server with a slightly different name. Then, on the new server in /etc/apache/sites-available I change the vhost file (ServerName and ServerAlias) by hand into the correct website. Now I can copy the files to the new server and point the DNS to it. Afterwards, in ISPConfig, I delete the site on the old server, and rename it to the correct one on the new server. ISPconfig will now 'overwrite' the vhost file, but that's fine because it remains the same website, it just makes it consistent again.
I know it's a bit dirty, but I can't think of a better way to do it.
