Thread: Tranferring accounts
05-23-2003, 09:42 AM #1KitKatGuest
I would like to transfer 45 accounts to another server, with their E-mail account auto directs statistic, database and whatever else. I was told because I'm transferring from CPanel to Panel is should be no problem. Could anyone by any chance inform me how to do it, so my client won't lose information and hopefully won't have a downtime?

the best way to manually move websites would be have both servers movre all content sites etc from the old server to the new get everything setup and once everything is ready all you have to do is move the domains to the new server. If you dont touch the previous server whilst the domains get moved there should be no dowintime with the transfer
If your using CPanel i believe it has a built in script which allows you to transfer accounts between two cpanel based servers
If you require any further help do not hesitate to contact me

Actually WHM's transfer features are kinda buggy and its best not to use them.
The best method would be to tar-gzip then do a wget to pick them up.

I don't think the transfer in Cpanel is really that good.

Exactly, thats why its better to SSH =)

I personally have used the built-in script in cPanel/WHM.
It works best when you have the root password to the server to copy from, and that server contains cPanel/WHM.
For single sites, I have transfered dozens from cpanel to cpanel with none or minor issues, some scripts had to have their install reran.
We have copied sites off of an Ensim server using the root password with out any issues.
Overall it is not a bad utility.

Check out that post.
I'm assuming you have root access on both servers and know how to do a full back up.
I've done it myself, and it works like a charm!

I have moved over 200 sites using cpanel's migration utility and have had NO problems with it. The only thing you have to think about is if any of your sites have dedicated IP's. Sometimes the migration utility will freak out if you try and move them without first manually moving the IP address to the new server.
I dunno, i guess it's just a mattter of opinion, but why manually do it when there are scripts? I'm sure i could write up a nice perl script to move sites....hmmm....IDEA!
