    To admin, please merge this if there's any similar...

    I have ISPConfig3 running with several website. I follow this perfect setup for the installation using Ubuntu 32 bit (with 2Gigs RAM). Now I have new hardware and it support 64 bit (with 8Gigs RAM). Are there any quick setup I can follow to migrate all settings in my old 32 bit system into my new 64 bit system? FYI, I can prepare the "perfect setup" into the 64 bit system using 64 bit Ubuntu but don't know which parts I should copy to the new system.

    In my own case, I installed the new server with 64bit packages.

    I used tar to copy /etc/httpd/conf/sites-availables/, /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/, /var/www/, /var/lib/mysql/, /var/log/ispconfig/, /usr/local/ispconfig/ from the old server. Then I used scopy to copy the compressed files to the new server. Of course the new server is using a different hostname and IP address.

    Then copy and paste the missing entries on the new server from /etc/passwd, /etc/group/, and /etc/shadow on the old server.

    Then shutdown the old server and change the hostname and IP address of the new server to that of the old server and run ispconfig update on the new server.

    Thank you.
