    We are creating a backup script and I was wondering if there are any other folders / files I should be backing up as well, in order to get a full backup of the server. Thanks.

    /home
    /etc/vfilters
    /var/cpanel
    /var/spool/cron
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman
    /var/lib/mysql
    /etc/proftpd
    /usr/local/frontpage
    /var/log/bandwidth
    /etc/valiases
    /usr/share/ssl
    /var/named
    /etc/localdomains
    /etc/rndc.conf
    /etc/my.cnf
    /etc/secondarymx
    /etc/domainalias
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/shadow
    /etc/fstab
    /etc/passwd
    /etc/wwwacct.conf
    /etc/group /etc/proftpd.conf
    /root/.my.cnf
    /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    /etc/quota.conf
    /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    /etc/ips
    /etc/reservedips
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/interchange/interchange.cfg

    We just moved two full Cpanel servers within the last two weeks. These were the files/directories we copied:

    FILES

    /etc/domainalias
    /etc/group
    /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    /etc/localdomains
    /etc/my.cnf
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/passwd
    /etc/proftpd.conf
    /etc/quota.conf
    /etc/shadow
    /etc/wwwacct.conf
    /root/.my.cnf
    /etc/domainips
    /etc/ips
    /etc/userdomains
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/interchange/interchange.cfg
    /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf


    DIRECTORIES

    /usr/local/cpanel/base
    /etc/proftpd
    /etc/valiases
    /etc/vfilters
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman
    /usr/local/frontpage
    /usr/share/ssl
    /var/cpanel
    /var/lib/mysql
    /var/log/bandwidth
    /var/named
    /var/spool/cron
    /home

    The moves went extremely smooth without a single problem, so if you include the files/directories above on your backup script you will be able to restore the server from scratch in less than 10 minutes :)

    Sorry, missed the named files/dirs:

    /var/named
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/rndc.conf

    iminteractive,

    Take a look above, I missed a few, also note that the fstab.conf file should not be restored therefore should not be backed up either ;)
