    plesk export to directadmin script

    Is there interest for plesk to directadmin export script ? We migrated more than 5000 plesk accounts last months to directadmin. If there will be enough serious interest we can adjust it and add more functionality and start selling it.

    Output is dump file that can be restored inside directadmin, and a export logfile with username & passwords and changes in them.

    We used it in the 8.x and 9.x range, the rest we can test easy, but dont see much problems.

    Code:
    ******* Start export for domain xxxxxxxx.nl with new username aoodr3te at Sat Dec 29 10:18:42 2012 Version: xxxxxxxx.xx *******
    
    Directadmin username: aoodr3te

    It's been years since we've had a call for migration from Plesk to DirectAdmin; I'd only be interested at a low price.

    Perhaps it would be useful if someone would offer a 'Plesk to DirectAdmin' migration service to people who want to get away from the Plesk Infrastructure complete and convert systems to running DirectAdmin, but I don't know what that market would be.

    I believe there are Plesk to cPanel conversion scripts available, but having no direct experience with cPanel, I don't know if they come with cPanel or if they're sold, and if so, at what price, but if they're sold, then that might be a starting point for determining pricing.

    We created this because the plesk -> cpanel -> directadmin way is absolute not satisfying. Gives more headaches and extra work than it saves work.

    I totally agree on this, it's quite rare to find someone who migrates from plesk to DA on a large scale.
    as for cPanel, it does allow you to migrate from most modern control panels from the gui itself and not as an addon service.

    after all it's all tar & scp.

    I am interested in a Plesk-to-DirectAdmin conversion script too!

    I have about 100 users/domains to migrate from a Media Temple Plesk server to my new DirectAdmin server.

    A script will certainly help...

    OK, give it some little extra time. We added extra features that will be retested in live migration next week.

    Mikey (mijn sleutel?), we've done this in the past as well. Migrated multiple servers from Plesk -> DA. One of the issues that came up - unexpectedly - then was that we needed a fully automated solution. This meant that no config-file updates had to be done afterward. Wordpress however had the 'nice' serialized option-fields containing the path to the installation. Changing this was rather tedious.

    How does your solution cope with this? Is it fully automated or do you, or users, have to change configuration-files and/or fields in the database(s)?

    We tried fully automated in the beginning, but problem with plesk was, that the user could freely choose there database & username. If the choosen values where not that unique, we ended up with way more crap. So we stopped with that. We provide everyone with a nice logfile, old & new credentials.

    Plesk 9.5 to DirectAdmin

    I am SICK of Plesk and need to move back to DA.
    I've been on Rackspace and now they are finally abandoning Plesk.

    I need to migrated 260 sites asap off a compromised server.
    Please contact me if you've got anything workable.

    Hello,

    after playing for a weekend, since I needed to migrate 300+ domains, I came up with solution as Mike said.

    It is PHP 5.4+ based.
    How it works:
    I provide Plesk username, and it dumps:
    all domains , connects to DA, creates customer with same info (sometimes it strips it a bit, removes dots, etc, since DA does not allow it);
    later while parsing a domain - it creates emails, emaila aliases, email redirects.
    then it copies emails using imap sync;
    FTP data using SCP;
    dumps databases uses mysqldump;

    Later one thing needs to be done manually - replace database credentials in scripts;

    One I am working now on; is to check if there is to check for existance for wp-config (wordpress); configuration.php (joomla);
    so it would run some auto sed commands to replace the mysql data - so more automation;
    and cron creation still needs to be done (can't find it in mysql, maybe then just should copy/paste the cron file with replacements;

    example output, don't want to output everything
    [DOMAIN]: xxxx.com
    [DirectAdmin]: Creating user aeva : U7ntaKKPy4
    [ OK.]:

    [ emails]:
    [ ]: arvydas@xxx.comass5
    [ ]: aurimas@xxx.com:secret
    [ alias]: info@xxx.com

    [ ]: ovidijus@xxx.com:Spalio25
    [ Databases]:
    [ ]: aeva_db : aeva_jml_user
    [ NEW]: aeva_ydsnq16c : aeva_ydsnq16c : QikKtLKxow


    and yes it coppies old DNS zone with some replations

    and so on...


    Can someone share ideas on exporting crontab (except jsut for copying?)
    Thanks

    I'm glad to see you working on a script and I hope you'll be willing to share it with the community.

    Personally I'd be afraid to automatically migrate crontabs, because contents would ofteen need to be different based on paths of programs, scripts, and target files.

    If you feel it's safe, and if the usernames are the same, then you may be able to just copy over the named crontab viles from the origin machine's cron directory to the target machine's cron directory (often but not necessarily /var/spool/cron).

    On one system I jiust checked the files are chown root:root and chmod 600.

    I'm not sure this is safe, though; I'm hoping that DirectAdmin staff will explain that seemingly insecure setting.

    We like to buy it also, we can test drive it with Plesk 12.

    Thats what I am thinking right now. Some people could just donate if they wish to

    I am now thinking if I am willing to share it and how it would look like, because atm is quite bound to my scenario...

    but in general I have migrated 300+ domains
