    will it do the work if I copy the vmail from ubuntu and past it in suse, and then take the database backup from phpmyadmin (ubuntu) and import it in suse phpmyadmin ?:confused:

    Theoretically yes, but I guess a lot of things won't work anymore if you copy your database. For example, SUSE uses a different document root thant Ubuntu (/srv/www instead of /var/www).

    Personally, I'd advice against using SUSE. ISPConfig is developed on Debian/Ubuntu, so it will work best on these distributions.
