    It's not a secret that transfering a cPanel account with addon domains to another cPanel server via WHM will do practicly everything except set up the addon domains.

    Not sure quite sure if this has to do with the fact that the addon domains are not currently pointed at the new domain, which is generally the setup when transfering servers.

    Now, my question is this... what files are touched when an addon domain is created?

    Like many others I'm sure than when you move servers, your need to get them over exactly as they were is key... This being the case, I'm willing to hand modify files to make the transition seamless for my clients.

    If you know what files are edited during a 'normal' addon domain process, please list all files here so that I (and others) may be able to manually configure some files instead of pointlessly waiting on propogation to take place.

    Also, what else is 'lost' in the transfer? ...

    Thank you in advance for all those that participate.

    /etc/valiases (file created for addon domain name)

    I usually just delete the old zone file, login to the users control panel and re-add the domain. Support Ticket Number:
