    You can take a config backup from 6.x (/var/clearos/configuration_backup/) and restore it to 7.x. This copies over all your certificates except cyrus-imap (/etc/pki/cyrus-imapd/). It may leave you with a couple of residual issues (I think it brings over a deprecated parameter in smb.conf and I don't remember the other issues), but you can compare a 7.x config backup from before you did a 6.x restore with the 6.x restore to see which files have changed and how they have changed.

    Another advantage of the config backup and restore is that it brings all your users across as well.

    As you have done, it is recommended to install all the apps in 7.x before you restore the 6.x backup.
