How to migrate sites from Plesk SiteBuilder 4.5 to Web Presence Builder?

Applicable to:

  • Plesk Sitebuilder

Question

Is it possible to migrate sites from old Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.9 to Web Presence Builder?

Answer

There are two ways of migrating sites from Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 to WPB:

  1. Static content from a Sitebuilder site can be imported to WPB with the "Import Site from Sitebuilder 4.5" feature.

    Open the WPB editor and, on the topic selection screen, click "Import Site from Sitebuilder 4.5":

    For more details, refer to Importing Sites from Sitebuilder 4.5 . These instructions are applicable to WPB 12: Importing Sites from Sitebuilder 4.5

  2. All sites from Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 can be migrated to WPB using the Migration tool.

    After website owners log in to Sitebuilder 4.5 wizard on the source server, they will be redirected to a new Web Presence Builder editor, and their website content will be moved to the destination server along with hosting publishing settings.

Note: The import of sites from earlier versions of Sitebuilder or other content management systems is not supported. Before starting the migration, verify that the Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 implementation you are migrating from is up-to-date. Before importing a site, please:
  1. Upgrade Plesk Sitebuilder to the latest version (4.5.5 for Windows or 4.5.9 for Linux),
  2. Install all updates and update Design Templates
  3. Republish all content on the site you want to import/migrate
