Huge problem...

The server with only 2-3 accounts was running CentOS 6 32bit with cPanel. The HDD crashed and a new HDD was installed.

I tried installing CentOS 32bit, but apparently cPanel requires 64bit now.

The data on the old hdd is safe and is readable just fine.

Can someone please help me copy all the old accounts etc to the new hdd ? account backup cprestore files are not available otherwise would have been a breeze...

Hi,

If the cprestore backup are not available then you have to manually rsync all accounts data from old HDD to new HDD.

If you are not sure about this then contact to your system admin.

Hello,

You may find it easier to first install cPanel 56 on a 32-bit OS that matches the previous server. Then, you could try manually syncing the files/directories from the recovered hard drive. At that point, you could package the accounts using the backup options available in cPanel for restoration on the new OS. Otherwise, you might encounter some compatibility issues when attempting to restore system files intended for a 32-bit OS on a 64-bit OS.

Thank you.
