    This is sort of a continuation of but as the topic's changed, I thought a new thread was in order :)

    I have a few server moves I need to do fairly quickly, and I'm currently running ISPConfig 2. I've just been playing with v3 and I like it very much, it seems much more logical in the way things are ordered, and the interface is an improvement. Well done guys! If possible I'd like to move to v3 as it allows me to manage multiple servers.

    Anyway, what I'm slightly nervous about is that the paths seem to have changed. I'm used to
    for example, but in the Server Config page we now we seem to have things like
    and that is going to mess up some of my websites. Any reason why I can't change this to
    Will that causing major problems if I change that naming convention?

    Thanks in advance, Neil

    Yes, as it will cause conflicting sites. Every client can have a multiple sites and in your setup the folders will get mixed up.

    You will have to use the directory structure from ispconfig 3 if you want to use ispconfig 3. If you have problems with old paths, use e.g. symlinks.

    OK - I've actually made the decision to stick with ISPConfig 2... I love the look of ISPConfig 3, but I just don't have the time or resources to go changing paths and testing every single website etc. My hunch is that it would actually work, but I must make the server moves within the next few days because stuff's being switched off!!

    SO - with that in mind, I looked at your Howto for setting up ISPConfig 2 on Ubuntu Karmic. That's fine, but when I come to migrate users, does it matter that the new system is running Courier and the old one was running Dovecot? Will I have problems moving mail?

    Thanks again, Neil

    On ispconfig 2, it does not matter. on ispconfig 3, it would matter.
