Arrggh I started on my mission to move Plesk from a win 2003 web edition server to a 2008r2 web server at 22:00 last night. Now 4 hours later I'm literally further behind than when I started. The Plesk migration manager SUCKS. I have 1TB of content/mailboxes/databases (mainly mailboxes though) and it won't let me only choose some of the stuff to migrate. At the rate it was going it would take about 7 days of downtime to migrate lol.

Anyway try to play with it a bit to speed things up but killed the entire new install of Plesk. Of course it has no reinstall option so I have had to reinstall the entire 2008 r2 installation and installing Plesk again just to have another go. I need to be finished before 0830 so don't think I'm getting a minute of sleep tonight!

God damn Plesk, its such a crappy program, costs about $60NZD a month and you have to pay for every bit of support, even if its a bug within the program. I don't know why I persist....

I always say, cPanel/WHM might not be exactly high quality software, but at least it's not PLESK!

I ended up working the entire weekend with about 5 hours sleep between Friday Morning and Sunday evening but managed to get it done going one by one and tricking it around the mail folder directories. God damn that software. When it works, it works well but when its broken your screwed.

cpanel is pretty good and is probably the best generic control panel out there, at least it is for linux. Plesk...yuck. But a lot of hosts use it, but tend to be the cheaper ones. Cpanel costs more, but I think it is worth the extra dollars.
