  2. Expand the ssh port field to 5 digits

    ssh can be configured to listen on different port numbers. The default is port 22. It can also answer on port numbers up to 65535, but the field on the migrator only takes 4 digits. I have ssh listening on a 5 digit port. This is just bad form.

  3. Plesk Migrator extension should be able to migrate server settings

  4. Ability to store domain mail content in the domain folder

    Please add the ability to store domain mail content in the domain folder like in cPanel /home/$user/mail/domain.tld/emailuser/

    In this case, it will be possible manually create a backup for website and mail content just by copying /home/$user/ folder and after restore this folder on the destination server.

  5. Transfer DNSSEC configuration for a domain during migration

    It would be great if transferring of generated keys and DB records of DNSSEC configuration for a domain during Migration will be implemented. Thus there would be no need to recreated them for each migrated domain.

  7. Include the hability to migrate Mattermost chat/data of the domains to the new server when using Plesk Migrator Tool

    When migrating a domain to a new server the Mattermost's data/chats present in the old server should also be migrated to the domain in the new server when Plesk Migrator Tool is used, or create a tool that makes it possible.

  9. Allow migrations of accounts between servers that share an external Smartermail server

    As above.

    Currently, it just fails as it tries to create the mail account on the receiving server which already exists on the mail server.

    At the least, you could allow migrations to exclude the entire mail domain and then make an account import tool to bring them into the receiving server.

  10. Database user permission is set according to the database server type

    Migrator should take into account the database server type (remote or local) and change user permissions accordingly. Currently, users that was set on the source with permissions to connect locally to a local database are migrated to the target with the same permissions, despite the fact, that on the target database server is set as a remote. That leads to inability to connect to remote database for that user on the source after migration and migrator change the permission accordingly.

  13. show the data syncing progress during a migration on Plesk MIgrator's log

    show the data syncing progress during a migration on Plesk MIgrator's log - right now if one has a large subscription to be migrated, there's no way to find out how much was synced over to the target server.

  14. Mail Importing improvement

    Within the "Mail Importing" section it would be helpful to show percentages of work (and other stats) and a remove button to hide old unnecessary import requests.

  15. Make Plesk Migrator also migrate cronjobs for domain while migrating from cPanel

    Make Plesk Migrator also migrate cronjobs for domain while migrating from cPanel. This decrease the number of manual actions that required to perform by customer after the migration.

  17. Ability to migrate messages of SmarterMail using file copying function

    Currently migration of mail messages performed when SmarterMail v100 is used performed via IMAP protocol. This is slower then simply copying file. Please add ability to migrate messages via simple copying too to speed up migration.

  18. Allow multi-thread options in Plesk Migrator to speed up huge migrations

    The Plesk Migrator tool is very limited when migrating a big amount of subscriptions, databases and mails.

    Checking the CPU usage when performing a migration, Plesk Migrator utilities are not reaching 20% of the CPU because this tool is not supporting multi-threading.

    Therefore, due to this limitation, a huge migration can take a few days or even more than a week to be completed.

    If Plesk Migrator would use the full capabilities of the hardware available in our servers, the migration can be faster and match our migration deadlines.

    It would be great that a few options in panel.ini or…

  19. Add docker containers to plesk migrator

    I'm in a position where I'm offering my customers elastic server and redis server usage access via docker. This helps isolate them, secure their data and also guarantee resources.

    However it's getting really tedious to migrate the subscriptions because of this. I would love it if there was a way to migrate docker containers between plesk installations

    Additionally it would be awesome if there was a way to create a link between docker container and subscription. That way when I migrate a subscription, only the relevant docker containers would get migrated

  20. Webhosting Migration Windows with central Smartermail Server

    Make Migrations possible for Windows Plesk Hosting Servers with central Smartermail Server. right now it's not possible to move/migrate hosting from source to destination windows plesk server if same central remote smartermail mailserver is used. would be great if we could just move webhosting part from older windows to newer windows hosting server and let all mail accounts and mails untached on central remote smartermail server.
