This section describes situation where it is necessary to reinstall the operating system on the computer where Kerio MailServer is hosted or to move data and configuration of theKerio MailServer to another computer physically.
The simplest way to transfer data and configuration files to a new store is to perform a full back up of the entire Kerio MailServer and then use it in the new Kerio MailServer store. The full back up involves all data (the
store folder) and configuration files including licenses and used SSL certificates (see section 15.2 Back-up of user mailboxes and basic server configuration).
To prepare conditions for transfer of Kerio MailServer's data and configuration to a new host, follow these guidelines:
Execute a full back up of the original Kerio MailServer (see chapter 15.2 Back-up of user mailboxes and basic server configuration).
Install the new Kerio MailServer.
Stop the Kerio MailServer Engine of the new Kerio MailServer.
Use the Kerio MailServer Recover tool to unpack the backup to the new Kerio MailServer store.
Optionally (but it is recommended), make backups of the
myspell folder and copy it to the new store if other than default dictionaries are used for spellcheck in the Kerio WebMail interface (for details on this topic, see section 17.3 Language).
Start the Kerio MailServer Engine.
