Moving server Enterprise 7.59

Post by wisp » Sun Dec 27, 2015 8:08 am

I want to move our Mailenable enterprise 7.59 to another server.

Moving from 32 bit to 64 bit.

I want to do it as a two step process. First move the mail boxes without data to the new server.

Then move the data over a few days (the data would still be accessible in the older server thru webmail) because the data is huge and may require many hours to transfer.

Is this possible. How do I go about it. Thanks a lot.

Im in the same boat except I am on version 9.01. Trying to migrate over to a new server. One would think that they have documentation on how to do this correctly. And they probably do. I'm looking for it. :-=)

Thank you pmnit. I want to move the postboxes without the data. How do I do that?

My best recommendation is to do a clean new install of ME on the new server and then manually create all the post offices, mailboxes, and set up all the settings. Then change DNS for users to start running on the new server. Then FTP the email from the old server into the new server. Be sure to delete the index files. You may have to do that a few times.
