The important directives in the map file (

- the change of IP address. You should always check if the ip-address change is correct.

ip(<new ip>).address = value(<new ip>)
- the change of domain name,

By default only standard domains are changed.

domain(<old domain>).standard=value(<new domain>)
You can also perform the change of other domains.

- restore of Mysql users’ passwords.

By default all passwords of all Mysql users are generated anew.
The list of Mysql users passwords will be written in the log file
(option “--log <log file>” for the following way:

“user(<user name>).mysqlpwd =…”
If you would like to restore old mysql users’ passwords, which are stored in the backup file,
you should remove the commenting mark '#' at the beginning of the line:

mysql(*).Password = rule(restore_dumped)

Note: if there was version 3 of Mysql server on your old Confixx server and now there is version 4 or 2 on your new Confixx server, you won’t be able to restore mysql users’ passwords because of the different encoding algorithm.
