How to migrate cPanel server - cPanel server migration.
I was very unsure about this task and quite afraid. So i gathered some information from Google. mainly from cPanel forum.
Step 1 - I have ordered cPanel server preinstalled from OVH.
Step 2 - I have coppied configuration files via SCP from my old server to my new server.http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/process-mov ... post831162
You can use Shell Backup script and Restore script i created.
Then i have copied mysql variables from /etc/my.cnf to a new server so it has bigger values for my needs.
Step 3 - Then i have Updated, Server, System Software and Configured cPanel updates to automatic + Updated cPanel instantly. Then maybe rebuild Apache using Easyapache profile i have copied from old server at Step 2.
Step 4 - I browsed DNS section in WHM and edited what needed.
Step 5 - I added my Fail-Over IPs i have with OVH for another server and also transfered them to my new server using OVH Manager.
Step 6 - I have rebooted server
Step 7 - I have Transfered all cPanel accounts from my old server.
Step 8 - I have changed my nameservers IP at my domains registar so it points to my new server IP
Notes: When i bulk transfered cpanel accounts from old server, it was somehow corupted because probably low mysql values or non rebuilt apache. So i then transfered some accounts manually.
This cpanel server migration guide should work. But i dont guarantee anything and you are doing this on your own risk.
