I've been given the job of migrating one of our existing Vpopmail
servers accross to a new machine. I have successfully installed the
latest version of Vpopmail on the new machine, but I have some questions
about the next part of the migration. The current server has just under
5000 domains and subdomains and each of those has about 3-4 users each.
What is the process for migrating from one Vpopmail install to another?
Can I just recursively copy accross all of the files under
'/home/vpopmail/domains'? And if so, is there some command I have to run
after the copy accross to re-index the directories or Maildirs? The
authentication system used is just the default 'CDB' file format on both
of the servers.
Another, related question is that I'm trying to find out the version of
the Vpopmail that is installed on the old server, but am having some
trouble. I've tried running some of the programs under the
'/home/vpopmail/bin' directory with the '-v' and '--version' flags, but
was unable to get a version number.
You can find quite complete answer to the domain migration part from
