I am shifting my email to an external service provider. I found this link about lowering the TTL before doing the migration so that the DNS caches are updated fast enough.
However, the page has me confused. The minimum TTL in my domain's SOA is 86400 (24 hours) and that of my domain's MX record is 14400 (4 hours). I am only migrating my email, not my domain. Does that mean I have to lower the TTL for just the MX record or does the SOA's TTL take precedence over everything else and I have to modify both?
I have recently migrated from one server with Plesk 11 to another server with Plesk 12 and cant get the alias emails work properly like they worked before the migration. I can send emails from any email@example.com (via Outlook), but cant receive them.I can receive emails only from the mailbox email of the main domain, but not for the alias-email of that mailbox for an alias domain that worked well for Plesk 11. Where might be the problem?
I have created a webmail.domain.tld in the Webmail-Services (where it says Horde 6.2.1 is installed), but the webmail.maindomain.tld is not working. I get displayed only the "webservers default page". Webmail.maindomain.tld worked well in Plesk 11.There is also no "Webmail" link in the domain control pannel like it used to be in the Plesk 11.I have created a new abonnement with a new domain to test this, but there is no Webmail link for this abonnement as well.
You message for <firstname.lastname@example.org> from 2014/11/17 could not be delivered. 4.0.0 smtp; 454 4.7.1 <email@example.com>: Relay access denied
I have done the migration with the Migration Manager from Confixx to Plesk 12.0.18. Users can login tho the mail account with Outlook, thats no problem(old password is working). If the webmailer is set to Hord the user also can login. But if i switch to roundcube it is not possible to login to the Webmailer! You get the message "Die Anmeldung ist fehlgeschlagen." (Login failed)
After changing the email password in plesk, it is then possibe to login(even if the new password is identical to the old one)?!?
Is this a known bug? Is there a solution for that?!? I really don't want to email every customor to ask him to change his password?!
I have upgraded to a new server and need to move all domains, users, and most important all email accounts to the new server.
Both servers run Plesk 11.0.9 on CentOS. The migration manager works great, no problems with that.
After migrating, I change my DNS settings at an external DNS provider to the new IP. The problem is, DNS changes take time. I then get emails on the old server and on the new server until DNS information is spread.
I was searching for a way to let the old server forward to the new one, but changes for specific domains in plesks DNS system (MX record) on the old server did not work. The mails still arrived at the old server.
What can i do? Can I uncheck "Activate mail service on domain" and will all emails be rejected until DNS points to the new server? Or will that lead to bounces?
We have 2 servers SQL, Web & SM 4.x each with and have about 40 sites and we wish to migrate them to Virtual sever for the ease of management & some cost saving. We are thinking of taking good configuration box with Win2k8 server and planning to run VMs over Hyper-V.
I've been getting frustrated with my hosting provider, and after doing application development and sysadmin for a while now, I'm ready to have a go at doing it all myself on a VM. I plan on migrating my site to the new server and when everything is set up, pointing my domain to the new name servers...
My question is - what's the best order to do things to minimize downtime? Can I set up email, MySQL, Apache, DNS etc before I have the domain pointing at the new server, while still being able to test adequately? Would I just set up the services and test them using the IP, then once I'm happy with everything, setup DNS, point domain at new nameservers, then change all configs to use the domain name rather than the IP? In theory if it email etc works with the IP, then the name server change shouldn't matter because it will resolve to the IP...
I am migrating my website to Hostgator, and before I change the DNS entries, I want to make sure that everything displays properly. To do this, I have added an entry into my /etc/hosts file pointing the domain to the new host. If I then ping the domain, the reply comes from the correct IP address. However, if I try to view the website, it is still served by the old host.
I thought it might be a caching issue, but I have checked with wireshark and using curl, and it is definitely connecting to the new IP address, but the server that is returning the pages is still the old one. I've contacted hostgator support, but when they make the changes to their hosts file, it loads correctly. Is this a local problem (my system), or something with their server configuration?
I transfered my forum from one server to another. ips changed. Before the transfer, I closed the board and put an announcement. After the transfer I opened the board and started posting.
Now, there are other members who've posted after the transfer but I've noticed decrease in activity. One of the members emailed me and told me that the board is still closed for him with the announcement shown. That message is from the old and not the new server. So how is this happening? What should he or I do? I and some other members can access and post normally.
Its been a for a couple of hours that my VPS is down, I'm not complaining or anything, I really know that Navid left one hell of a mess for them to sort out but I just want to be sure that my VPS is down because of the migration process and not because of something I did.
Anyways I submitted 2 tickets, still no reply. The guys must be busy fixing and moving all these accounts
I will be migrating my VPS over to a new VPS (same provider) which has Fedora 6 instead of 4.
Anyhow, all of the IP addresses will change on the new VPS.... so while the migration process via. Plesk should be fairly straightforward, I'm a bit worried about the DNS. The DNS is managed by Plesk and will continue to be managed by Plesk, but again it's the IPs that I'm worried about.
All of the hosting accounts on the current VPS use the nameserver "ns1.citedata.net" and "ns2.citedata.net" as well as their associated IP addresses. Although the nameserver domains will remain the same, their IPs will change.
I wasn't sure where to post this so here goes, I need to migrate a MySQL DB, in the past I have just created an SQL file and used that method (sometimes having to split the SQL file up) but now the DB is about 50 meg and 733,233 records.
Is there an easier way to migrate the Database from one server to another?
