migration to a new server --> permissions in /var/www/virtual
hi,

i have ispcp running on my server. now i want to move to a new server.
so i installed ispcp and copied the databases and content of /var/www/ to the new server with scp.
then everything belongs to root....
but I have to copy the permissions, too, because on the old server most things belong to www-data or vuxxx.
then i tried to tar everything on the old server and untar on the new one.
that also didn't help.

how do i move the files correctly?
a friend said that the permissions of files could be bound to the user id's instead of the usernames???

what do i have to do?

thanks & greets,
soomon

you can use rsync to copy files without changing permission and owner (man rsync)

tar should also be able to do it, just look at it's manpage for the "preserve permissions" command switch (-p?)
