Hello all!

We recently have been having problems with our server (Perl issues, out of memory errors, general cruft, etc.) and, being Windows users, we are considering a complete wipe of our VPS and starting out fresh to resolve these issues. The only question that we have is that we have a whole lot of data on our VPS that we don't want to lose (customer accounts, our custom cPanel skin, etc.), and I was wondering what the best way to go about backing up/restoring all this data would be. Is it possible? Just to clarify, we want to use the same server, and NOT transfer to a new server.

Thanks in advance! :D

You might want to hire someone to take a clsoer look at your server and sort out the problems you're experiencing. If it's a problem with cPanel, feel free to put in a ticket to cPanel support. I'm quite sure they'll be happy to assist you in making your cPanel Powered server operate properly.

LakotaHosting - I am just about 1 hour south of you (Washington Court House Area of Ohio)
If you would like - I can come up your way and spend a bit of time going over cPanel with you.
Chances are this is something simple with the setup of your VPS - going over some logs may help a great bit - In any event I can help you with the transfer and/or backup of the VPS and implementation of a new in a jiffy.

Are you by chance a member of any of the local Linux User Groups (noticed your a windows shop) - as some folks there may be able to help as well.

I shot a PM over to you for review as well.
