    Hello.
    I am going to set up a new VPS so it is fresh and up to date with all softwares.

    Which will be best?
    Set up a new VPS with new ip adress and copy everything over from the old.
    And then change from the new ip to the old server have.

    Or..
    Set up a new VPS with new ip adress and copy everything over from the old.
    And then change the nameserver for the domains to the new ip's.

    Or can i do it on a better way?
    I will have so litte downtime as possible. I have full ispconfig, with mail-server, http-server, ftp-server, dns-server..

    Thanks!

    I'd change the IP - this will have less downtime than changing DNS records because it can take up to a few days until DNS changes propagate over the internet.
