    Beware: Plesk Migrator won't migrate (without notice): MySQL routines, events, triggers, user-specific permissions, event scheduler status.

    When all the post checks are completed and the migrated domains’ data is synchronized with the source server, it is time to turn the services online on the destination server.

    Hello @Paykasa, 

    Could you, please, clarify the question?

    The website does not work after migration? If yes, what error is displayed?

    For the investigation consider contacting Technical Support.

    Hello there,

    Thank you for your detailed instructions. I have a problem with Plesk migration. It's soooo slow... I wonder if you know that how it works. Does it copy files in a websites one by one or does it make a backup of the whole website and moves it at once to the destination server? If it's moving the web files one by one, isn't it a better idea to make a full backup of each website, then move it to the new server and restore it? Does it help to make the process much faster?

    Thanks!

    Hello @Iman,

    Generally, migration speed depends on many factors: amount of domains, amount of files, files size, network speed.

    > or does it make a backup

    You are correct. Basically, Plesk Migrator creates a backup, transfers it, restores the backup.

    Hello Kiani

    Plesk migrator is capable of migrating from cPanel but the same OS is required to be used. So, you may migrate from cPanel to Plesk server on linux.

    To transfer domains from Linux server to Windows you may use "Site Import" extension:

    Hi @Kea,

    I have tested the command on Ubuntu 18.04 with Plesk Obsidian 18.0.21.5 and it works well for me.
    Please make sure that you have used the following command:

    for domain in $(MYSQL_PWD=`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` mysql -u admin psa -Ns -e"select name from dns_zone where name not in (select val from misc where param = 'FullHostName')") ; do /usr/local/psa/bin/dns --update-soa $domain -soa-ttl 1h; done

    Hi @...,

    Thank you for your response. 


    Does this command work with "sudo"?

    Hello @Kea,

    Yes, the command works with "sudo" and should be executed under root user.

    We'd like to migrate from cPanel to Plesk but I see the cPanel version above listed as 11.5. We're running cPanel 11.48.0 (build 12). Are you aware of any migration issues with our version of cPanel?

    Hello Mike Homme we constantly update tools to support migration from latest cPanel, so you should be able to migrate without issues.

    Thanks very much for the quick reply.

    I'm sure you're updating the tools which is great. But could you verify that cPanel 11.48 (our current version) was/is in any way deprecated for incompatibility reasons for a successful migration? Above it seems cPanel 11.5 is a "requirement"... no?

    Mike Homme double checked here: officially we test and support migration from latest cPanel version. However with high probability migration from 11.48 will work as there were no major changes so I recommend to try.

    I am running a vServer with Ubuntu and every other year I need to update the opsys and migrate the Plesk configuration.
    When I did this for the first time, I requested a new vServer, installed the new opsys and migrated Plesk with the plesk migrator.
    After that, I needed to transfer my domains (I have 2) too, because of the new IP address. This is an extra step, involves other parties, and causes some delay.
    Thus, I found it much easier to backup plesk using a command like:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup --server -output-file /myBackups/
    Then I do a fresh install on the existing vServer and restore the plesk backup using something like:
    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskrestore --restore /myBackups/backup_???.tar -level server

    This way I do not need to hassle with domain transfer and everything is directly under my control.
