Users and sites migration to new Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder is described in this KB article:

[How to] How to migrate sites and users to another Sitebuilder for Linux server

A single user/site may be migrated with utilities sbbackup and sbrestore.

Note: the utilities were developed for users/sites backup and restoration on a single server, but they may also work for migration. For correct work, it's recommended that you migrate users with sites, not single sites.

  • Backup a user with all its sites on source Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 server

    Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.9 for Linux:

    ~# /usr/local/sitebuilder/utils/sbbackup user --uuid=<user uuid> --with-sites --with-site-content --recursive --output=/BACKUP/DIR/USER.NAME_BACKUP.xml

    If the user is a Reseller, then all Site Owners that belong to the user are dumped with this command.

    You may use the following MySQL query to get a list of UUIDs for regular Sitebuilder users:

    mysql> select uuid from sitebuilder3.user where user_name not like 'admin%';

    Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.5 for Windows:

    <SOURCE SITEBUILDER DIRECTORY>\Utils>SBBackup.exe users --uuid=71023d4c-1278-4e57-a736-ba1d469105d3 --recursive --with-sites --with-site-content --output="C:\USER_NAME.xml"

  • Restore the user with all its sites on destination Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 server:

    Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.9 for Linux:

    ~# /usr/local/sitebuilder/utils/sbrestore user --uuid=<user uuid> --with-sites --with-site-content --recursive --input=/BACKUP/DIR/USER.NAME_BACKUP.xml

    Parallels Plesk Siteubilder 4.5.5 for Windows:

    <DESTINATION SITEBUILDER DIRECTORY>\Utils>SBRestore.exe all --input="C:\USER_NAME.xml" --log="C:\sbrestore_xml.log"
