    Im leaving my current datacenter. What's the easiest way to transfer 400 clientes to another machine on another datacenter without making 400 domain nameservers changes?

    The file is in /var/cpanel and is USERNAME.accts . The basic rule for transfering a whole server is to move the whole entire /var/cpanel directory. It hold lots of vital information.

    Little? hardly! :cool: I think ill stand for awhile thanks.

    All it says is your Cpanels "test bitch" and nothing about Admin so that is truely news to me FYI. Thanks for the enlightenment anyway.

    Also what is the policy of cussing in the forums? I had to delete my entire thread because thphantom was hurling 4 letter words in one of his posts and i though was inappropriate. I simply deleted the entire thread.

    ok, brace yourself, dumb question time lol - my admins not available hence this post, so no bashing ;)

    how would i, in simple lame terms, transfer the entire /var/cpanel directory to our new server, all the accounts have been moved over, just not this directory

    many thanks in advance,

    smit

    ps: i have to say i love cpanel now, i say now as our old provider set everything up wrong so cpanel never worked properly, but now it's been set up correctly, boy is it good :D

    lol Smit what's sad but true is most girls I meet find my job to be awesome. They all love that I know a lot about computers etc etc. I'm not your average computer geek lol. I party a lot but also devote lots of time to computers. When girls come over they love how my whole network is setup. I think it makes their panties moist :) . I grew up a heavy partier and have also been into computers since I was 8. I hardly sleep so I always have time for them both.
