VisNetic MailServer 7 - 8
You must have previously created a backup file to restore configuration. See Backup Configuration article on how to backup your configuration.
Note: Version 7 backup files are NOT compatible with version 8, if you accidentally restore a version 7 backup file in version 8 Webmail will not function and you may have to completely uninstall and reinstall to restore Webmail.
Backup files for Version 8.3 and higher do NOT backup the registration keys. Restoring a 8.3 backup file on a new server will fail with incompatible server reference keys. You must acquire new keys using your new server reference key. Please contact sales to get a new key, firstname.lastname@example.org
