Migrating to New Server

Hi, I'm trying to migrate to a new server... I followed the documentation HERE: https://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/system/migrate

Everything seemed to go smoothly until the last domain... The readout is below... I'm wondering what the Error is or means and WHAT to do as my next step? What do I do if the restoration fails? Do I just "try" running it again?

Howdy -- I haven't run into that before, but doing some Googling, it looks like that can happen if an index that is particularly large is moved to another MySQL version with a character set that takes up more space... that new character set can push the large index over the size limit.

Try editing your /etc/mysql/my.cf file (possibly just /etc/my.cnf), and add this to the mysqld section:


Then restart the database.

After that, are you then able to import that domain?
