Hi all,

Trying to figure out the best way to do this

Situation is this

Old server has a failing hard drive, so I Want to move all the sites I host, to a new server, using the same IP ranges
There's about 70 accounts, about 20 have dedicated IP's
I know there's no server migration system, so what's the best way of doing it?
Can the accounts be copied across, then certain configuration files, like /etc/ips and the dns files, be replaced with the ones from the old server?

Hello :)

The recommended method of copying the accounts is to use to the "Transfer Tool" option in WHM. However, the following thread might be helpful if you have a failing hard drive that prevents you from using WHM:

Thank you.
