    Hello, I am moving to a new server, also a Linux with Plesk, and I cannot make a full backup from the old machine. I have a password protected folder that I moved to the new machine but now I have 100 users/passwords that I would like to move to the new machine. What database or file should I move to the new Plesk machine? Thank you in advance. Regards
