Moving a Database to Another Subscription or Webspace
Plesk allows you to move databases among subscriptions or webspaces. This can be useful when you move a website that works with a database. You can move only the databases that are not in use by installed APS applications from the Applications Catalog.
When you move a database to another webspace or subscription, assigned database users are moved too. However, if a user account is universal and has access to other databases, it will not be moved with the database.
Note: If the Plesk administrator moved a database to a subscription belonging to a different Plesk user, the former user will be unable to access the database using phpMyAdmin. This is also true for phpPgAdmin and myLittleAdmin databases.
To move a database to another webspace or subscription:
- Go to Websites & Domains > Databases > Move to Subscription (or Move to Webspace, depending on the Plesk user) in the database tools pane.
- Select a subscription from the list or start typing its name and then select it.
- Click OK.
