modoboa-pfxadmin-migrate 1.1.1

A script to migrate from PostfixAdmin to Modoboa

A script to migrate from PostfixAdmin to Modoboa. It has been tested against versions 2.3.3 and upper.


This script is only suitable for a new Modoboa installation.


Install this extension system-wide or inside a virtual environment by running the following command:

$ pip install modoboa-pfxadmin-migrate

Edit the file of your modoboa instance and add modoboa_pfxadmin_migrate inside the MODOBOA_APPS variable like this:


  # End of list

Then, add a new database connection named pfxadmin into the DATABASES variable corresponding to your PostfixAdmin setup:

    "default" : {
        # default connection definition
    "pfxadmin" : {
        "ENGINE" : "<engine>",
        "NAME" : "<database name>",
        "USER" : "<database user>",
        "PASSWORD" : "<user password>",

This connection should correspond to the one defined in PostfixAdmin’s configuration file.

Run the script

You are now ready to start the migration so run the following commands:

$ cd <modoboa_instance_dir>
$ python migrate_from_postfixadmin -s <password scheme>

<password scheme> must be replaced by the scheme used within postfixadmin (crypt most of the time).

Depending on how many domains/mailboxes your existing setup contains, the migration can be long. Just wait for the script’s ending.

The procedure is over, edit the file and:

  • remove the pfxadmin database connection from the DATABASES variable
  • remove 'modoboa_pfxadmin_migrate' from the MODOBOA_APPS variable

You should be able to connect to Modoboa using the same credentials you were using to connect to PostfixAdmin.
