    Hello,

    I'm new to cPanel and I've been tasked with migrating some existing websites to a new data center.

    My plan is to use a pfSense router (public IP address, example 24.24.24.29), install VMware behind that, install CentOS guest (use private 10.0.0.29), install cPanel on CentOS, and then forward incoming traffic from 24.24.24.29>10.0.0.29

    Is this a workable solution? One of the first lines in the cpanel install doc says it won't work with with private IPs. Is this a sufficient work around? Is there a better plan?

    Ideally I'd like to build an infrastructure on the private side to support backups, leverage VMware for hardware moves, etc.

    - - - Updated - - -

    There will be about 10 websites on the CentOS box. Four(ish) will be e-commerce sites with the remaining being domain site/name placeholders.

    The websites are currently running via cPanel on an old/failing hardware CentOS box with a public IP.

    I've been told I can use the migrate feature built in cPanel to move the sites.

    chasing down some notes, found this about NAT'ing so it looks like I can proceed with my plan

    1:1 NAT

    Hello :)

    Note the updated documentation is available at:

    1:1 NAT

    Make sure the NAT-configured network is setup before installing cPanel so that the environment is automatically detected during the installation.

    Thank you.
