- Plesk for Linux
- Plesk for Windows
Is it possible to transfer (migrate) from Plesk for Windows to Plesk for Linux and vice versa?
Cross-platform migration is not supported.
Alternatively, starting from Plesk Onyx, it is possible to transfer website data between Linux and Windows using the Website Importing feature. You can migrate one or more objects of the following types:
- Website Folders
- Website Databases
Note: Email accounts will not be transferred.
For more information, visit Website Migration Guide.
During migration of WordPress instances from a Windows server to a Linux server, the warning about non-registered WP instance can occur. Apply the workaround from the following article.
For other cases the only way to migrate a subscription from a Linux server on a Windows server or vise versa is to create the same subscription on a destination server and upload all website data manually. Plesk Professional Services team can help with that task on a paid basis. To learn all conditions, contact Plesk Professional Services.
