    Hi All,

    Never attempted a migration and thought i would ask here first for the best possible way.

    My new server is online and basically ready to go.
    Its running on the same VLAN as my existing and current server so i am able to delete IP's from my existing server and add them to the new server at anytime.

    Old Server:
    WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.6-S27698
    FEDORA 4 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    New Server:
    cPanel 11.24.4-R32603 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
    CENTOS 5.2 i686 on standard

    Anything i should be aware of, as far as im aware the IP change should be simple i hope?

    And does anyone have advice on whats the best way to Migrate?
    Many thanks all.

    Best way to migrate would be transfer using cPanel's backup feature but check a few things.

    - First of all match the apache/mysql/php versions and their configurations.
    - Transfer the accounts over and make sure sites are running fine via temporary URL from the destination server.
    http://123.456.123.456/~username

    where username is the cPanel username of the account you have transferred and 123.456.123.456 is the destination server's IP.
    - Note any site/account using dedicated IP on the source server from WHM >> IP functions >> Show IP Address Usage. You need to create the same setup as soon as you migrate IPs across.
    - Do it on a weekend or at a time of low traffic, so that least amount of clients notice this. Best of luck.

    Many thanks for the reply, as simple as i thought.
    As long as all is setup identically i should have no problems.
    Thanks. :)
