  1. Unable to migrate domain with the following error in /usr/local/psa/var/modules/panel-migrator/sessions//debug.log:

    Failed to transfer WPB sites of subscription ''
    Migration tools tried to perform operation in 3 attempts: Command {plesk_bin_domain} --update {domain_name} -publish-sb-site true -sb-site-id {site_id} with arguments {'site_id': 'plesk_bin_domain': u'/usr/local/psa/bin/domain', 'domain_name': u''} failed with exit code 1
    stderr: Unrecognized option: '-publish-sb-site'
  2. Plesk domain binary does not contain 'publish-sb-site' option on target, while source server contains:

    [source]# /usr/local/psa/bin/domain --help | grep publish
    publish-sb-site   <true|false>    Creates website using Presence Builder
    [destination]# /usr/local/psa/bin/domain --help | grep publish


Web Presence Builder support is missing on a destination server license:

Tools and Settings > License Management > Sites published with Presence Builder=0


  1. Add Web Presence Builder add-on to Plesk license on a destination server, or re-activate it with Plesk trial license.

  2. Re-run migration.
