IMAP Migration Tool Instructions


The basic idea is that there is a web based front end that writes out a script that you will have to run via command line later.
  1. Unpack the tar.gz file and put the migrationtool directory in a web directory.
  2. Make sure that the file migrationtool/scripts/archive.sh is writable by your web browser (example: "chown apache archive.sh" where apache is the user running your webserver).
  3. Edit the migrationtool/index.php file. You will need to change the values for "src_server" and "dest_server" hidden form elements.
  4. Edit the migrationtool/archivesetup.conf file. Change the values for $submit_message and $folders_skip to your requirements.
  5. Then point your browser over to that directory (example: http://localhost/migrationtool/).
  6. Fill out the form with the auth info and pick the settings you want. Submit the form. Do this for as many accounts as you need to.
  7. Go to the migrationtool/scripts/ directory and run the archive.sh script. Make sure it is executable by your user.
  8. NOTE - at this point you should either move the archive.sh script to some non web directory or run resetscript.sh for security reasons. I will address this issue more gracefully in a later release.
