Hello Steve Ankeny

This will move all data related to SOGo settings, calendars and address
Your user source information and postbox/IMAP content is not included.
How you transport that, depends on the kind of source you use.
1) stop openldap on old server
2) export with
slapcat -n 0 -l ldapConfig.ldif
slapcat -n 1 -l userBackup.ldif
3) move these 2 files to the new server
4) import them on the new serverwith
slapadd -n 0 -l ldapConfig.ldif
slapadd -n 1 -l userBackup.ldif
5) start openldap on new server

1) get a dump with
mysqldump --opt ${USER_DATABASE} > userBackup.sql
2) Move this to the new server
3) import it with
mysql < userBackup.sql

Also don't forget to move your sogo.conf to the new server ;-)
(And change your settings for MySQL, IMAP and SMTP according to your new

Kind regards,
Christian Mack
