  1. 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

  2. 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…

  5. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. Ability to use admin credentials for Migration Manager

    Using root password is not secure. Using SSH key is not comfortable.

    Destination Plesk should connect to the Source Plesk with admin credentials and send a temporary SSH key to the Source server. This key can be than deleted after migration. Or for more security admin of Source server can generate a one time password only for migration.

  18. Integrate option to interrupt copy processes

    I've copied a larger website to another destination, but I needed to interrupt the process, because something needed to get changed first. But there is no way to do so, I needed to wait a couple minutes before the task was done, why is there no option to cancel the current process? You could add an additional alert, if someone really wants to cancel it, but I see no reason, why this option is not available at all.

  19. Add a Warning to Plesk Migrator for when there are clients to be migrated with the same name in both the source and the target server.

    E.g.: When migrating data from Server A to Server B, if the name of the client being migrated from Server A is the same as the name of an existing client on Server B, then Plesk Migrator imports such data into the existing client without giving a warning that the name of the client to migrate already exists on Server B.
