Default Switching from Plesk to ISPConfig

Hi

I'm running a virtual server with Fedora Core 2 and Plesk 7.5 and want to switch to ISPConfig.

Has anyone made some experience with switching?

Can I uninstall Plesk with rpm -e psa-* and then install ISPConfig?
Or are there other steps necessairy?

What about mailboxes.
Can I copy them to the new folder without loosing there content?

Any advice apreciated!

Thanks,
Alex

I've never used Plesk, but basically ISPConfig is for fresh systems. There's some manual work involved in moving existing web sites and users to ISPConfig...

Thanks for the reply.
I don't mind to do some hand copying as long as it works at the end.
I don't have many websites online.

I'm more concerned about the mailboxes.

Plesk uses qmail and as far as I know ISPConf uses sendmail.
Do I get it right that both of them use provmail and thus a switch should work?

ISPConfig works with Postfix and Sendmail, but not with qmail. And it uses procmail.
I don't know if the switch works; I don't know Plesk...

If you're using mbox, then you don't need to change anything. If you use the Maildir format, then you can copy over the old Maildir to the user's new home directory.

Falko is talking about mailbox migration in common. This is software independant.
