    Hi, on my new system, I have Debian 6, and the old one I had Debian 5. The ISPConfig system had BIND and Dovecot installed, but I don't see a guide on how to do this on Debian 6. Would I still be able to use Dovecot on Debian 6? (The Debian 6 guide for ISPConfig 3 only lists BIND and Courier).

    Yes. You can use the debain 5 guide, it should work on debian 6 as well.

    I imported the old tables into the new database and it's not letting me log in with the old password.
    I also copied /etc/group and /etc/passwd over from the old server
    EDIT: MySQL fails to start when I run /etc/init.d/mysql start (or restart)

    There's nothing in the error log.

    It was working fine before I overwrote the /etc/passwd and /etc/group and imported the old tables into the new database...
    I tried searching around and it said to check permissions of /var/run/mysqld and set the owner to mysql, and setting the owner of /var/log/mysql to mysql. I did both of these, as well as set the owner of the log files to mysql, yet nothing :/
