    Dear All,

    If there is already a Thread for this, you can post a link and that will be fine. I tried several different searches and did not find what I was looking for. I am a new user to WHM and cPanel.

    I have two domains on the server both sharing the IP. I now want to move one domain to a new separate IP so I can install and SSL Cert for it.

    What is are the steps / process I need to do to make this happen and for the system to keep this all running after updates and regeneration of httpd.conf and such.

    Basically I want to do it so the system knows what I did and keeps track of it the right way.

    Thank You,

    Dear cPtechie,

    What about rebuilding httpd.conf and such. It appears when I do the above that the old IP is still being used by httpd.conf.

    It just seems there is something missing.

    Thank You,

    Hello, you can verify whether the IP changed or not using the ping or dig command.

    ping domain.com or dig domain.com.
