    Hi Comunity,
    I have a existing cpanel, If I wish to migrate another cpanel together with this cpanel, how should i go about the smart way?

    Using the "backup" in cpanel, if i am not wrong will overwrite or mess up everything.

    Domain name point name server, add on domain in cpanel,and upload files in that folder.
    This solve the domain and web files?

    How about email? I wish to retain existing email.
    Create the similar email address in cpanel "webmail". Am i right?
    How about existing email, how to transfer over?

    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate a little more on the migration? For instance, do you have root access to two servers? Are you attempting to copy an account from one server to another?

    Thank you.

    Hello :),

    I have ftp access to both servers.
    I am attempting to merge 2 different cpanel into 1 cpanel - meaning merge the old account database,webmail,domain together with this new account.

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    There are no tools available to automate this task. Instead, you should manually import the data from the source server into the account on the destination server. You can add the new domain name as an "Addon Domain", create it's email accounts and databases, and then import the database backups through phpMyAdmin.

    Thank you.
