First of all, thanks to the Cpanel team for an excellent piece of software.
I am a new customer and currently running cpanel on a trial basis, at the end of which I intend to take out a license for a year.
Before that, I would like to know how to migrate accounts from a certain setup to Cpanel.
1) Cpanel backups, how do I migrate them to my Cpanel machine? For instance, I have a backup for a site in a filename 'daily.tar.gz'. When I uploaded it via the restore process, it uploaded the file and untar'ed it in /username directory of /home/username, but nothing at all in /public_html. How can I restore the files in /public_html? How can I extract the mysql database in that archive and restore that?
2) On another server I have the normal setup where all the files are located in /public_html and the databases could easily be dumped and then injected into Cpanel databases, via phpmyadmin. However, the emails are setup as /home/username/mail/ where mail directory contains all the folders, such as inbox, sent-mail, Drafts, samplefolder, etc, which is obviously different to the way Cpanel stores emails. Q: How can I migrate all the emails to Cpanel?
