    I've got my instance of cPanel running on a very unstable server right now (crashes weekly), and I'd like to completely move it over to a new machine so I can phase out the old one. This means moving DNS/mySql/httpd/mail/config files/user accounts; pretty much everything. I was wondering what the best way to do this was? Which files/partitions need to be moved? Any order? I think there used to be a how-to on this, but I couldn't find it.

    Here's a little more on my environment:

    Currently running:
    WHM 9.4.0 cPanel 9.4.1-R64
    RedHat 9 - WHM X v3.1.0

    Old machine:
    Celeron 333
    64MB Ram
    200GB IDE drive
    -NS1 & NS2
    -Exim mail
    -20 user accounts
    -ssl certs for some accounts

    New Machine:
    Dual PIII
    2GB Ram
    SCSI RAID 5 (170GB partition)

    I'm really hoping there's a step-by-step guide for what I need to do.
    Any & all comments/suggestions are appreciated.
