How to migrate user to the new server in Vesta Control Panel

Migrate user to the new server in Vesta Control Panel

1. Make user backup on the old server. In this example we will use admin as the reference.

v-backup-user admin

2. Copy tarball to the new server and place it in the /home/backup directory

scp /home/backup/admin.2014-01-14.tar new-server:/home/backup/

3. Restore backup on the new server

v-restore-user admin admin.2014-01-14.tar

If you want to restore data under another user name, simply rename archive. If user name doesn’t exist on the server, account will be created automatically.

mv /home/backup/admin.2014-01-14.tar /home/backup/newuser.2014-01-14.tar
v-restore-user newuser newuser.2014-01-14.tar
