    I just setup a new Cpanel server running on Centos 7 and used the transfer tool to transfer a website from a Centos 6 Cpanel server. What I found was there was so things that were broke due to a difference in Apache, PHP, and MySQL config.

    I found this checklist but it is outdated. Is there any more up-to-date checklist with specific details about everything you should consider comparing and possibly moving over? I assume it's better to start with a clean O/S install of Centos 7 as opposed to upgrading from 6?

    Hello,

    Yes, it's advised to start with a fresh install of CentOS 7 as opposed to directly upgrading the OS to a new major version. It looks like the transfer question was answered on your previous thread at:

    Migrating cPanel Settings to New Server?

    Could you let us know if that didn't work as expected?

    Thank you.

    Oh I forgot I had already asked in a previous thread. How embarrassing. Thanks for the reminder.
