    I just put together a new server. I installed ubuntu 7.04 and ISPConfig on it. Now I want to move one or more sites from my old server to my new server. I'm guessing that you simply download the site's web folder from the /var/www directory. Then upload that folder to the new server's /var/www directory. I'm going to still operate my old server, in addition to my new server. Is this the correct way of moving a site from one server to another?

    Also, how do I point my new ISPConfig server to the old ISPConfig's mysql server?

    thanks in advance,

    Here is a bit more detailed guide: ispconfig

    Dont forget that you will have to create the linux system users on the new server too if you want to move sites.

    You should not point 2 ISPConfig installations to the same database at the same time.
