    I bought the Migration Tool earlier today and first of all there is a tiny error that might cause some confusion. At some point the scripts asks for the contents of /root/.ssh/id.rsa.pub , but there is no such file. The file in question instead seem to be /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub (underscore instead of a dot).

    Another thing that is a bit strange is that I got this error message and yet, to my knowledge, the info I entered is correct:
    "I could not get the server list from the remote api. Maybe you need to update your ISPConfig first."

    How is that remote API accessed? Any special port? I assume (?) it's the remote user?

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    The API is accessed from the soure to the target. Did you create the remote-user on the target and enabled the boxs for the remote-user? The port is the same as you use to login into ispconfig (default 8080)

    Thank you for your fast response!

    It turned out to be that I hadn't restarted MySQL after changing something in the on-screen guide.

    Now when I have a look at the generated shell file, I only see a lot of rsyncs for the email accounts, nothing for the databases, database users, websites etc. What am I doing wrong?

    By the way: I would also like to know the difference between a "real migration" and a "dry run"? (english is not my mother tongue)

    Thank you!

    Aha! Found it. The definition of a "dry run" seem to mean no databases, no database users etc.

    A "dry run" would go through all the checks/steps as normal except not make any changes. So eg. it could test the connection to your remote API, but won't make any calls to actually create users and things.
