Migrating a Server with Plesk Onyx to Cloud Server (Linux)
Plesk Migration & Transfer Manager allows you to migrate hosting data from one server to another. Examples: Service packages, accounts, or subscriptions with content.
In order to migrate this data, the same Plesk version must be installed on the new server.
The following data will not be migrated by Plesk Migration & Transfer Manager:
The list of connected database servers and their settings
Apache module settings
Backup files and FTP storage settings
Third-party software and services, e.g. Google services
Administrators and customers should manually configure these settings and add missing items.
Transfer between Plesk for Linux and Plesk for Windows is not supported.
