1. Trying to migrate Iredmail from one Server to another (almost same version)
Checked the link for backup and restore https://docs.iredmail.org/backup.restor … nd-restore

my server could not locate the version first thing like rsync and somehow it seems , the support page above says to copy /paste folders /var/vmail/vmail1  --- I thought this may be not right

Looking for support and a coffee together smile


Re: Iredmail to Iredmail server migration

/var/vmail/vmail1 stores all mailboxes by default, if you sync with "rsync", better run rsync with arguments like "--owner --group --perms" to preserve owner/group/permission. Or, set owner/group/permission manually after synced:

cd /var/vmail/
chown -R vmail:vmail vmail1
chmod -R 0700 vmail1


Buy me a cup of coffee ($5) to support iRedMail:
