==== REQUIRED BASIC INFO OF YOUR IREDMAIL SERVER ====

- Deployed with iRedMail Easy or the downloadable installer? Downloadable
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: Ubuntu 16.04
- Store mail accounts in which backend (LDAP/MySQL/PGSQL): MySQL 2.8
- Web server (Apache or Nginx): Nginx
- Manage mail accounts with iRedAdmin-Pro? Yes
- [IMPORTANT] Related original log or error message is required if you're experiencing an issue.

Ok.....here's the situation.....
Information above is about original server. I came into a message filled with EXT4 errors, upon trying to clone, found there were bad sectors/blocks.   I have the nightly backups that are made on a USB hard drive. I would like to restore them to a new box I setup that is running iRedmail 1.2 with MySQL 4.3

I know the migration documentation says I need to upgrade the old server, this really isn't an option at this point and just have these backups to go off from. Is there a way to still import all the user accouts/mailboxes/etc....

Re: Restoration/migration question

Try this:

- Export SQL databases from OLD server
- Create a temporary SQL database on NEW server
- Import exported SQL database (from OLD server) to temporary SQL db (on NEW server)
- Apply SQL related changes to the temporary SQL db
- Export this temporary SQL db and import it to the real one.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
