  3. 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.

  5. Migration DNS records for domains from CPanel

    Hello,

    Please add the functionality to migrate domain DNS records during the migration from CPanel to Plesk.

    At the moment, Plesk apply default DNS template for these migrated domains. All additional DNS records have to be added manually.

  6. Plesk Migrator : ability to exclude folder/files from migration

    Sometimes, migration has to be quick.
    But when there is a domain containing many big files (videos, big archive, ...) that will slow the migration process.
    It would be a good idea, I think, to let the user exclude/include folder from migration process.
    May be just add an option in the CLI command like :
    plesk-migrator copy-contents --skip-folders-list=[FILE WITH FOLDER LIST]

  8. 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.

  11. improve the migration manager for horde identities

    I recently migrated to a new server and most went smoothly.
    Alas all horde settings an especially the additional identities I had added are gone and it is a real pain to add them one by one.
    So please make the migration manager aware about horde settings and migrate those properly too.

  12. Migrate AWStats customizations

    Currently any customization made into AWStats configuration files (for domain /usr/local/psa/etc/awstats/* or server-wide /etc/awstats/awstats.conf), for example, language changing are not migrated. It would be nice feature to add ability to migrate such settings, so that users do no have to turn it back manually

  13. 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

  14. Make Plesk migrator notifies DNS slaves about the new master.

    After a migration from Plesk to Plesk, configured DNS slaves with the extension ***** DNS Manager are not notified about the new master of the zone for migrated domains.
    It could be done while clicking on 'Switch DNS' in advanced mode with the commands rndc delzone example.com and rndc addzone example.com {etc...}.

    Add an opportunity to migrate additional FTP accounts with 'crypt' password via Plesk Migrator

    Right now, these accounts are not migrated because Plesk cannot store hashed passwords for system users

  16. Migrate domain only

    Hello,

    Please add fucntionality to migrate only one domain from the subscription, including configuration, mail boxes and databases.

    For example, If I need to migrate an additional domain from a subscription and the subscription has a lot of additional domains, the migration of whole subscription is feasible.

  18. forwarding HTTP(S) requests from the source server to the target

    In case of migration and the customer use 3rd party Name servers, it would be useful to be able to redirect all requests that come to old ip to the new server ip.
    This will helpp to avoid downtime

  19. website importing with different ip for ftp and www

    The current website import function only allows entry of the source domain name.
    I need to specify the ftp server details separately as for some hosts the ftp server is on a different ip to the website and the current import function fails as it fails to access either the website or ftp server depending on which info was entered as the source domain.

  20. 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.
