    Hi guys,

    I have one ISPconfig but it's very obsolete (ISP 2.0); so i need to migrate all of web site to the new ISP that I installed; but i don't know how can I migrate. Maybe FTP ? I don't know how to process... I don't find any tutorials for this case.

    if you have any ideas !

    Thanks !

    I use rsync for server to server data moves. Eg. Setup the client and website on the new server, then rsync the website over, and fix anything that is needed. If the website uses a database, you'll also need to create that in the new server, dump the data on the old, copy to the new and import it.

    Ah, perfect .. I didn't even check, just assumed ISPConfig 2 would be too old.

    Once data is transferred (via manual rsync or the migration tool, for that matter), you need to change DNS records to point to the new server's IP address rather than the old. And as I mentioned, you may need to fix a few things, eg. changes in .htaccess files, file paths coded into files, etc., but that could be done after you take the new server live via a DNS change (or you can do that ahead of DNS by editing your local hosts file so your machine connects to the new server while you work on the website).

    Other things to keep in mind are email (eg. you might need to migrate that, too) and what the DNS servers are (eg. if your old ISPConfig 2 server is a registered nameserver, you will probably need to setup DNS on the new server and update the domain registration as well).

    So great explanation, you have enlightened my lantern. There is an other step after this ?

    Sometime you run into things like mailing lists, large dns zones, large/complex sites or such that can take more work to migrate (though the migration tool would probably handle dns zones .. dunno about mailing lists), but for a simple domain that's pretty much it; once DNS is changed and everything is on the new server, the move is complete.
