    Hello!

    I need some guidance on the following: in a few days we will have a change of IP for the server where cPanel, would you know which files should I check? o How to make the change easily?

    Thank you.

    You can use the WHM > IP Migration Wizard to change over the main IP to a new shared main IP. The IP on the backend would need to be switched first. WHM's IP Migration Wizard will then take care of the cPanel portion for accounts.

    I've also moved the thread from the feature requests area, since this is an inquiry rather than a feature request for a new option in cPanel or WHM.

    Before this change there a way to back up the current settings?

    There isn't a way to back up the current settings via WHM or cPanel, since there are a large number of setting files that would be changed.
