Have to restore a mail only server and need to make sure I get everything right

    Have a multiserver setup with dedicated mail servers. One of my vm mail servers is having a problem and I need to restore an image that is about a month old and restore recent files from our nightly backup R1soft backup system

    I think ISPConfig uses MySQL for the user info so all I should have to do is restore the /var/vmail folder and the MySQL db. Is it that simple or am I missing something. In Tools I see a Resync Mailboxes, does this just re-create the mailboxes. Should I run this before I attempt to restore?

    Would appreciate any help with someone who has run into this before. I am still limping along on the old server but if that server shuts down or the server hangs up I will lose it forever. Not an ISPConfig problem but rather a vm problem with xenserver but its affecting my ISPconfig network.

    Thats should be all.

    There should be no need to run the resync function in this case, just restore latest mysql db and /var/vmail.
