    "server A" was just hacked, so I just purchased "server B" for backup.

    The question: would it be a problem to use the Copy Accounts function to copy all sites from server A to server B, restore A and then copy all accounts from server B BACK to server A?

    thanks for any insight :)

    If you have been hacked and have a backup on a second drive and restored the OS and installed Cpanel to your new primary drive, make sure you can reach the backup drive when the server is started. Then all you need to do is go to WHM and choose backup and then restore your accounts from there.

    I would not copy a site that may have caused the hack in the first place, as you may copy the exploit back to your new drive.
