RESOLUTION

This guide will take you through the steps to migrate your Atmail 7 Server + WebMail Software to another server.

On the old server
Dump the MySQL database

mysqldump -u root -p [atmail-database-name] > /usr/local/atmail/atmail7-dump.sql

On the new server
Copy the entire /usr/local/atmail/ folder to the new server.

rsync -e ssh -avr root@[old-server-ip-address]:/usr/local/atmail/ /usr/local/atmail/

On the new server
Import the Atmail database.

Log into MySQL and create new database to insert the dump into. 

mysql -u root -p
