I want to move the data directory to another partition on all nodes. Apache (vhost), IIS (vhost), MySQL (databases) and Postfix (mailbox content). What's the correct way to do this without breaking functionality of PPA?
way to move data from one server to another? I have root access to both my servers, but I'm not sure how I would move one entire domain without having to FTP it. The databases I can do manually by importing a dump to the new server. I'm just wondering about the files itself.
Has anyone pulled off a mass server move during the middle of the night? We have decided 350 E Cermak is where we want to be but are still working out the details of where we want to be in the building.
While the final details are being finished, I need to come up with some kind of plan to pull the move off with the least amount of downtime. Our current dc is about 4 miles away from 350 Cermak and we have approximately 50 servers to move. I plan on leaving a linux box around to redirect any traffic that is ignoring TTLs.
I was thinking the best thing to do would be label and remove all harddrives, then see if a moving company could put the servers on palettes, wrap them, and move them to 350 E Cermak. Not sure if a moving company would work in the middle of the night or not.
Courier services are pretty much out. Anytime we have had a courier service move anything not in a massive box with padding, it gets bent or broken.
I have two hard disks, and I would like to move all of my MySQL data onto the second drive. My dilema is this; what is the best way to go about doing this? The tutorial I followed last night had me use cp to copy the /var/lib/mysql folder over to the second drive. However, it took ages to move one of my databases. It's a forum hosting database which has tons and tons of tables. It ran for about 5 hours and still didn't finish because I decided to stop it right there. I know it was working; but still, it took forever and I had to put it back up.
What would you do? Do you recommend say, copying just the 'mysql' database that has the users, and then taking a dump of all databases with mysqldump and moving it that way?
Also, is there any way using the cp command to continue what I started last night, but not write a database file if it hasn't chnaged at all?
We are using a server with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Plesk 12. When installing plesk, the vhosts directory is automatically created in /var/www/vhosts . Our problem is that /var is on a 120 GB SSD drive. We would like to move it to /data, which is a 2 TB drive. Whenever we used:
This KB-Article [URL] .... (exits with errors) this third-party documentation [URL] .... (Which is from a user who has the exact same problem with the same paths) all we get is ERROR 403 on our demo site. The site was created before the move and we also tried to create it after the move. The Plesk installation is fresh out of the box. There were absolutely no changes to the installation. Even the domain default or server default pages will not load anymore.
unfortunately I can not move a customer to another reseller, because of this error:
"Einige der ausgewählten Kunden wurden nicht zu **** **** verschoben. Der ausgewählte Reseller besitzt nicht die Berechtigung 'Verwaltung der DNS-Zonen', aber einige der Kunden besitzen sie."
which means "Some of the selected customers could not be moved to **** ***. The selected reseller does not have permission to configure DNS-Zones, but some of the customers do."Well, the customer does not have this permission, because no DNS-service is installed on the server.If I check the customer's permissions there is no point "DNS configuration" or something like that.
I have 2 Plesk server and I want move everything from old server to new server. I can move my site downloading via ftp but how can I move my email message to new server? when I creating backup with backup manager I think everything is backed up but when I trying to restore that backup on new server I am getting invalid signature error and email message was not moved (only account created)
Is their any way to moved email message automatically? I checked on /var/lib/psa/dump and I see their many backup files created like apache file, conf, info, logs, vhost ?
I need move "Manual Move" all the email content from different domains.
For example i have the domain:
with the emails:
email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
I like know how i can move the email content from every email from one Panel to another Panel without the Transfer Manager. Because the account is created on the other server with different configurations, but i need backup only the old email.
i have my own vps i been running lxadmin but i would like to move to cpanel. but is there away to make a back up of all the files and emails and sql databases ect in lxadmin and then move it tocpanel buy adding that back up from lxadmin?
or will i have to upload all files one by one and make all user acounts again?
Wordpress is becoming more and more integrated with Plesk which makes it quite easy to setup a new domain for someone and install Wordpress so he can start.
Often this Wordpress site has to be developed and a better looking site is already available.
By default Wordpress installs in a subfolder /wordpress (I know you can change it by choosing "custom install"). After a while that website is ready for publishing.
To move that website I will have to move the running site to a subfolder and then move the content of /wordpress to the root. This is not sufficient. I then have to do a search and replace on the /wordpress and wordpress/ and replace it with /
No problem there....
But then I have lost Wordpress from the Plesk interface.....
What's the most elegant way to move a Plesk managed Wordpress site?
I don't mind if it stays in its folder (maybe preferrable?), as long as the user doesn't see that "/wordpress" in its URL.
