    Hi guys,

    I have created this little script to backup all the important files. Have I forgot something?

    echo "";
    echo "************************************";
    echo "       ISPCONFIG BACKUP";
    echo "************************************";
    echo "";
    echo "Wait a moment please...";
    echo "1. Make a backup of /var/spool/mail";
    /etc/init.d/postfix stop
    cd /var/spool
    tar -czf $ISPCONFIG/mail.tar.gz mail
    echo "2. Copy the passwd file";
    cp /etc/passwd $ISPCONFIG
    echo "3. Copy the shadow file";
    cp /etc/shadow $ISPCONFIG
    echo "4. Copy the group files";
    cp /etc/group $ISPCONFIG
    echo "5. Copy the Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file";
    cp /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf $ISPCONFIG
    echo "6. Copy the local-host-names file";
    cp /etc/postfix/local-host-names $ISPCONFIG
    echo "7. Copy the postfix/virtusertable file";
    cp /etc/postfix/virtusertable $ISPCONFIG
    echo "8. Copy the named.conf file";
    cp /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf $ISPCONFIG
    echo "9. Copy the proftpd.conf file";
    cp /etc/proftpd.conf $ISPCONFIG
    echo "10. Copy the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file";
    cp /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf $ISPCONFIG
    echo "11. Backup of the ISPConfig Databse";
    mysqldump \
            -u$USER -p$PASSWORD -h$HOST \
            -Q -c -C --add-drop-table --add-locks --quick --lock-tables \
            db_ispconfig | gzip --best -c > $ISPCONFIG/db_ispconfig.sql.gz;
    echo "Restart Postfix"
    /etc/init.d/postfix start

    This is for Fedora/CentOS, right? A few paths are different on Debian/Ubuntu.

    yes it is.
    we are using CentoS 5.2.

    any suggestion?

    For CentOS and Fedora, your script looks good. On Debian and Ubuntu, the paths to Vhosts_ispconfig.conf and named.conf are a bit different.

    Infact I have CentOs.
    The question is another: Have I forgot something to backup?

    I would like to move my server to the newer version of ISP Config3. Which are the files that have I save from the old ISP Config2 server to move to ISP Config3?

    You cannot upgrade from ISPConfig 2 to 3. The setups are totally different.

    Hi falko,

    thanks for your reply is there a way to hide the upgrading from 2 to 3.0 to the users. I mean that all the parameters can remain the same to avoid the re-configuration of the clients?

    It's not possible to upgrade from ISPConfig 2 to 3.

    So, have we send to the users the new credentials of all the services activated?

    If you install ISPConfig 3 on a new server and recreate all accounts there, then yes.

    ISPConfig 3 CentOS 5.4

    I don't have the files in steps 5 through 10. I followed the "Perfect Setup" for CentOS 5.4 and ISPConfig 3 for x86_64--though I substituted i386 due to hardware on my box.

    ISPConfig 3 is running basically as expected, but I am definitely anxious to back it up!

    Thanks in advance!

    Please post this in the ISPConfig 3 forum.
