Migrate i-MSCP 1.2.9 to i-MSCP 1.5.0

  • Hello,

    I want to migrate my current i-MSCP 1.2.9 (Debian 8.0) installation to a new Server with i-MSCP 1.5.0 (latest Debian 9).
    I can't upgrade the i-MSCP on the current server so I've tried to install the new i-MSCP version on the new server, and then migrate the data (www, mail, imscp, db). But after reconfigure i-MSCP there were a few errors.
    So I've tried install the old i-MSCP version on Debian 9 but that was still not possible, because some php5 packages aren't available.

    I've tried these instructions:

    Is there another method, to directly upgrade from i-MSCP 1.2.9 to 1.5.0, which works?

    Thank you in advance for your help! :)

  • Upgrade your "old" server to debian 8.9 and then update to imscp 1.5.1. After this try Serverumzug
    Have you plugins activated?

  • I've installed PolicydWeight and SpamAssassin.
    Because it's a productive server with a lot of users, I don't dare just to upgrade.

    So is it possible, first to migrate like Serverumzug and then to upgrade?
    Can I also do a direct upgrade from 1.2.9 to 1.5.1?

  • I have successfully migrated to a new server and new i-MSCP version.

    Here's a little how to:

    • Install latest Debian 8 with i-MSCP 1.2.9
    • Pre sync Data from old to new server (www, mail, imscp, *.pem)
    • Take the old server offline
    • Sync again your data (www, mail, imscp, *.pem)
    • Ex- und import all Databases
    • Upgrade the new server to i-MSCP 1.5.1

      • Maybe there will occure some errors, just search in the forum.
    • Take the new one online
    • Upgrade Debian 8 to Debian 9

    Serverumzug will show you what and how you can sync data and database ^^
