iíve already read in the forums that itís not Ąeasilyď possible to switch from ispconfig 3 with apache to ispconfig 3 with nginx and php-fpm, but if I still wanted to do it, how should I proceed? This is what I have in mind:
I have a server running with ispconfig 3 and apache. Itís a live-server with around 10 clients on it, with around 20 domains and the same amount of email-accounts. I know that I can not simply uninstall apache and install nginx because of the different configuration files of the existing sites etc. But what if I did the following:
1. Backup the www directory and all dbís (of course..
2. Uninstall apache and php
3. Uninstall ispconfig 3
4. Install nginx and php-fpm
5. Reinstall ispconfig 3
6. create all client accounts from scratch in ispconfig (including websites, ftp accounts email and databases)
7. copy the backed up content of the www directory to the according folders created by ispconfig with nginx
Do you think this could work? Or is it much more complicated than that?
Another problem that I would have to tackle is e-mail: the login information would have to stay the same for my customers. Is there some way to import the e-mail settings of my clients into the new isp-config installation, after Iíve created the clients and domains the same way they were in the old ispconfig installation?
Iím thinking of trying this out on a test-platform (which I would have to set up first). But before I do that, I wanted to know if itís possible at all, of if itís a waste of my time and too complicated. Or if thereís a better and faster way than the one I described.
I would be grateful for any answers or tips!
