    • Add ability to restore user account from Cpanel backup file

      Would be a great help if this could be added to migration manager!

      • Ability to migrate just configuration, no content

        Sometimes we have to transfer domains with very large data. By the time the migration has finished (a few hours later) a lot of the data is out of sync. So we have to manually rsync the data across again.

        Therefore, we would request the option to just migrate domain configuration and no data. So just set up the domain, all mailboxes subdomains etc.. but leave all content behind. Basically just a skeleton of the domain.

        • Confixx Migration: Set a (new) Main Domain

          I don`t want a MainDomain like web11.myoldserver.com as main Domain.
          So don`t migrate the default confixx Domain and give us a chance to set the User Domain userdomain.com as main Domain, please.

          • Express transfer: migration manager option to change IP address

            cPanel has a feature much appreciated: transfer in "Express Transfer".
            This feature allows you to migrate one or more domains from a source server to a server with changing IP ADDRESS from old to new server.

            I think it's time to apply it in Plesk.

            • plesk migration only Synchronize already migrated domains

              On huge migrations that have been delayed for days we need perform manyal sync of mail boxes, files and databases to be able all info is in sync before change IP's or DNS.
              This feature is already present in Plesk 12.x, but only as option for current migration. Please, could you take consideration add
              "Synchronize to check if there are any updates for Migration & Transfer Manager components." as stand alone option to keep in sync already completed migrations?
              This feature could also match partially: #5284370-synchronize-plesk-servers
              and could fit needed by other users like: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-panel-migration-manager-is-there-a-way-to-do-an-incremental-resync-after-initial-transfer.333719/

              • Site migration on client level

                There should be a way for clients to be able to migrate from one provider to another between servers without problems and server administrator involvement.

                • Migration from Liveconfig to Plesk

                  Many users as one of my customers have a liveconfig installation. I suggest a liveconfig migrate script to get all stuff to an plesk server.

                        • Migrate all crontabs and MySQL routines, events, users permissions

                          Please add to Plesk Migrator the ability to:

                          1. migrate all crontabs, as currently, only the last created task for a domain will migrated;
                          2. disable crontabs on target server before migration, to avoid unpredictable effects with those scripts that interact with the outside;
                          3. MySQL routines;
                          4. MySQL events;
                          5. MySQL event scheduler status on/off;
                          6. user permissions that you set from Tools&Settings > Database Servers > Manage via DB WebAdmin" - see https://snag.gy/HWyFRS.jpg

                          • Better migration of "PHP from OS vendor" parameters

                            Please consider the following use case:
                            - testdomain.tld on a CentOS target server is using "PHP from OS vendor" version 5.3;
                            - The destination server is Ubuntu 14, with newer version of PHP from OS vendor, so you install PHP 5.3 with Plesk Installer;
                            - The migrated testdomain.tld will have different PHP parameters that may cause disruption of the website.

                            An example: PHP short open tag is enabled by default on PHP from CentOS repository, but is disabled on PHP 5.3 handler installed via Plesk Installer. If a PHP code uses short open tags, the script will stop working. Plesk…

                              The problem may be in that destination server will not be able to use specified version of PHP for the migrated domain because of absence in official OS vendor’s repository. To prevent this kind of problems we see improvement of pre-migration checker which will notify you about possible post-migration issues. After that, the server administrator must solve the problem himself. The automatic resolving of these incompatibilities looks very dangerous.

                                Hi,

                                With the "site copy" functionnality, I can move website A to website B. Great.

                                But the copy don't keep the password protected folders : I have to recreate them.

                                It could be great to add an option for migrate password protected folders with the website copy.

                                Thanks.

                                  We would really like to move 6 of our Enkompass Servers (CPanel for Windows) to Plesk as CPanel dropped development for enkompass some years ago and we would like an nice migration from Enkompass.

                                  I could mirror our production environment to a test bed to help with development if need be.

                                    Please provide a way to run a script after you do copy of databases / files so you can easily search and replace connection strings, urls etc.

                                    It would be easy to implement for you, and a cool as hell feature to have in plesk.

                                    At the moment I need to do this every time I copy between environments.

                                    • Ability to migrate from Helm 4 to Plesk

                                      It seems odd, that you have magration tools for the old version of Helm (3), but nok for the latest.

                                      I can migrate from Odin (Parallels) Helm 4 to several other controlpanels, but not to Odin (parallels) Plesk.

                                      • rsync from local server and databases. Sync with dev server

                                        Ability to import a domain with rsync from the panel from another server with SSH to import all or select folders to import. To import manually or automatically. It is ideal for development work and production. To do the same on the contrary. Also to do with databases. Configuring remote SSH and database credentials.

                                        • Migration of File Server (Samba server)

                                          Currently, Plesk not supporting the File Server(Samba) migration from one server to another, because these are stored as Plesk server settings which is not possible by transfer tool.

                                          This should be add in plesk migration features to make migration easy for File Server else it would be a manual work to migrate the same as we have to setup it from beginning.
