    Ok is there a way to make a backup of customer account data, ie all of them from one server. Install and configure a new server and then import the customer account details into the new one. This way I dont lose any passwords ect.. that the customer creates if I decide to get a new and faster server to use as my hosting server.

    Am I making sense.....

    This might give you an idea how to start:

    BTW, I'd also backup the /etc folder, your Postfix configuration, your Apache configuration, the BIND configuration, ftp configuration and restore them on the new system.

    Well... its not easy but that looks as though it will work. Thanks for that, hopefully I will never need it.

    Thanks again

    What's the purpose of built-in backup in ISPConfig?
    It creates zip files which can be downloaded, but how they can be restored?

    Management --> ISPConfigDatabase --> Backup Data
    Tools & Options --> Backup Manager --> Backup

    But how to restore them through ISPConfig web interface?

    Thats a database dump of the ISPConfig mySQL DB.

    Backup of websites.

    You can restore them only by FTP.

    hi you all,

    i need to replace my server by another, so i need to backup ispconfig system, user datas, databases, and the webfolders of the users.

    but i think i also need to backup the system users created by ispconfig?
    should they have the same UID as on the old system?

    cheers willcee
