    I am on centos 7 with cpanel, I want to move a site from one server to another, I am not going to use cpanel's transfer accounts feature, I have my reasons for that.

    So I want to create the ftp and emails accounts that existed on old server on new server. Is that possible? If so how? Are there some files on server which stores the user/pass configurations which I can copy to new server and the ftp/email accounts will function without any action on my users's part?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the reply, I checked the PDF, It explains where email passwords are stored, Any idea where the ftp passwords are stored?

    Hello,

    My server has Pure-FTPD and there is no /etc/prureftpd/ folder, any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    The "/etc/proftpd/" directory exists whether you use Pure-FTPd or ProFTPd. The storage directory remains the same no matter which FTP server you choose to enable.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    This is my server :
    • CENTOS 7.2 x86_64 virtuozzo
    • WHM 54.0 (build 20)
    I created a ftp account, I logged into ftp with cpanel user/pass but I don't see "/etc/proftpd/" folder, Is it possible that the hosting company can change the location? Its a knownhost server.

    Thanks for your patience :)

    Found them sorry, was looking in "etc" folder of cpanel user account instead of server's "etc" folder.
