Migration of WHM/cPanel Accounts to New Server

August 25, 2013 Billy Aung Myint No comments

Been busy with migration of cPanel accounts to the new server. The task mainly involves the following steps , for future references

– Back up , backup and backup the current accounts. The good thing is that I been backing up for some time but just a note to self.

– Check the DNS settings , especially the nameserver setting for the domains. Change them to point to the new nameservers , ns1 and ns2.

– Try not to do it on weekday where there will be visitors. Instead , try on weekends. (Things I learnt by doing the office Infra migration)

– Always remember the Murphy’s Law , anything that can go wonng , will go wrong.

– Do a snapshot on VM Client once things seems ok.. At least you know there is a point to fall back on.

– Finally , be alert and smile 🙂
