    I own an interworx server and I'm trying to migrate my existing clients to my new cpanel server.

    I need to know of an effective method of doing this, does anyone have any ideas?

    Any help offered would be greatly appreciated.

    I understand this is a manual process, I just need to know exactly what I need to do. What SSH commands would be best used to compress the home directory (I need to maintain file permissions) and how to properly move the mysql databases and mysql account information.

    Please advise. Ty

    Interworx to cPanel account migration

    I'm currently in the process of migrating my interworx server over to my new cpanel server.

    I understand this is a manual process, but I need to know the best method of doing this.

    I need to know which SSH commands are best used to compress the interworx public_html folder while maintaining chmod permissions.

    Also, what is the best method of moving each individual database to the new account.

    I am willing to pay for quality advice, this is an urgent matter and I require immediate assistance.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Have you tried rsync?

    No I have not, is that something that needs to be added to the machine?

    Sorry, I'm fairly new with Linux and SSH.

    If you can provide me some insight on rsync, I'll really appreciate it!

    Good guide for sure, can I trouble you to help me figure out the proper command to execute to copy my "public_html" directory over including permissions to the other server?

    Just so I know it won't mess up.

    I want to copy it not delete the originals, just copy.

    Delete

    Hi,

    I think you are confused over the delete function. Since Rsync is a sync tool between two servers, it can make the backup server mirror the live server of sorts. Hence, since mirrors are identical, if you delete a file on the live server, it will also delete that particular file on the backup server. This tool can be used as an incremental backup between live and backup servers.

    Rgrds,
    -Xyber.
