I'm wondering how easy, or difficult it would be to backup all WHM/cpanel accounts/settings from CeentOS 6, wipe the server, and then restore the backed up settings/accounts to a fresh Ubuntu install on the same server.

Is it as easy as installing the OS, installing cpanel, and restoring the backup? Also, what about the cPanel license?

I manage the server, so I can give you just about any other info you need. Thanks in advance!

I'm happy to see that @dalem was able to help with your questions. If you have any further questions on the system requirements the documentation here should be helpful: System Requirements | cPanel & WHM Documentation and if there's anything not answered there please feel free to ask here again as well.

Thanks!
