    After all the talks on the forums, I would like to ditch Fedora, and go with CentOS as this seems to be the preferred choice of OS among most of the people on this forum.

    My question is this; What would be the best method for moving all clients, databases, and data, as well as cPanel settings to a new OS (Same Machine). Should i put a second drive in it, and then install the new OS and just move everything back into place, or would it be better to build a second server and use the cPanel account migration feature? Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    Thank you

    Go on, have a guess
    Either on the same server with an newly booted OS+cPanel installed or a new server, first create a Full cPanel Backup and copy that to a safe disk/new server. On the new disk/server set up as before and then restore your user accounts from backup.

    Alternatively, follow the procedure that DigitalN just posted in this thread:
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
