    • 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.

      • Add ability to restore user account from Cpanel backup file

        • 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.

                • Wordpress Cronjob on Installation move to crontab.

                  WordPress has automatically fetch a cron job with each poll.
                  With nearly 1,000 users at the same time that it can render your server.
                  Even with a strong server.

                  It is possible in the configuration to disable the automatic cron job and outsource.

                  http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/wordpress/disabling-the-wp-cronphp-in-wordpress

                  This could manually insert in Plesk.

                  I have so imagined that one among the WordPress settings applies the default value of the cron jobs for 10 min. And you can manually select this value from every minute to every day 1x.
                  So as in the previous Cronjob menu but just in the WordPress configuration of jeweilgen…

                      • Website copy with password protected folders

                        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.

                            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.

                              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.

                                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.

                                  • Let nginx reverse-proxy deliver data from source system until transfer is finished

                                    It would help us, if during a migration, while the destination system got the domain configuration, but not yet the data, the nginx-component of the destination server would work as reverse proxy for the source system.
                                    So a client, requesting data for a domain from the destination server could already be served content, even though the data is not yet transferred. After the transfer is completed, the configuration can be changed back to the usual “nginx points to local apache” configuration.

                                      Martin,

                                      Current way of switching websites after migration is that it all is resolved to source server and all requests are processed from source unless migration is finished, then – before provider switch DNS or IP, one can perform content synchronization and then immediately switch DNS / IP to new server.

                                      Could you please clarify the use case with reverse proxy in more details? Why standard way is not convenient?

                                    • Create Migration Tool from Odin Plesk Automation (OPA 11.5) to Plesk 12.*

                                      I believe the reverse is already there from Plesk to OPA but there is nothing to go the other way.
                                      With the planned demise of OPA we would like to be ahead of the curve and already be using Plesk 12.* throughout with either OBAS or WHMCS as the billing automation.

                                      • Modify absolute filesystem paths in databases during migration

                                        Plesk Migrator is doing a good job in modifying user credentials and filesystem paths in php-Files during migration (If the option to do so is set). However there exist some CMS, which also store (absolute) filesystem paths in the database.
                                        It would be nice for the migrator to modify those paths also. Since the databases are dumped from the source system, it should be an easy task to add a sed-command to replace paths, before importing the dump on the target server.

                                        • why i can't remove my primary domain from this host?!!
