    I was searching through the internet how to backup ispconfig mail accounts with their passwords so if i move to another server i don't have to add bunch of accounts again, is it possible?

    What files should i backup and restore to the new configuration?

    EDIT: I use dovecot, roundcube on Debian 7 wheezy

    That should work. The mailbox configuration is stored in the ispconfig database only and the mails files (content) are stored in /var/vmail/

    Thanks. I can confirm that it works.

    I have another question. Can you verify this tutorial?

    Now i need to move bunch of ispconfig servers i think this will be the faster procedure. I know that i have to change the dns configuration after the restore(ip addresses in dns zones)
