    There is an option in WHM...
    But you have to go to System settings first, and changed the shared IP to the one you plan to use.
    When done, change the shared IP back.

    sorry I don´t get you...

    so you mean I change first the chared IP to the IP i want to switch to and then change back? Why would I change back? Besides of that would that not only change IP´s on newly created accounts?

    I need to change on already existing accounts....

    thx for your input :)

    Oh, I'm with you. I'm just not articulating this correctly.

    When migrating multiple accounts, it assumes you have mulitple IPs to give -- one apiece -- to these accounts.,

    WHM->Server Setup->Edit Setup
    Change the Main Shared Virtual Host IP to the IP you plan to use.

    Then do a Multi-Account Functions -> Change Mutiple Sites' IP Addresses

    There ya go.

    WHM->Server Setup->Edit Setup
    Change the Main Shared Virtual Host IP to the IP you had previously.

    Is there another way of doing this, such as creating a 'secondary shared IP address' or something? I did a test run of this method and ended up with all sites that should have been available on that IP being pointed to the last site added to the IP.

    I am trying to do the same thing. Why is there only 1 IP for sharing? Why can't you set some IPs that can be shared and some IPs that are for dedicated? :confused:

    Eh, set it by hand and quit b!tching. There's no substitute for actually knowing what you're doing. cPanel is designed to make your life easier. It cannot do everything for you.

    Thanks, troll. I would be more than happy to do that, except that management systems such as cPanel tend to dislike manual edits to their config files and will screw things up more in those cases.
