    Hi all,

    I have been using ENSIM for 4 years now, with the headaches that goes with it. Anytime I upgraded php or mysql, something was broken, because they won't support this version, or there is 2340 dependencies that cannot be touched.. A nightmare...

    I talked with my friend FishStick_ , and he spoke to me about cPanel.

    What really attract me is that the cPanel does not depend on the packages on the OS from what I understood. I can easily upgrade php5 for all hosted domains, without hurting anything.

    This is what I am looking for... My only question as of tonight, before I buy the big animal, is : can I install cPanel on CentOS 64 bits ? Or it does not support it ?

    Thank you guys, and welcome to me ! :)

    and even better ..you can download the centos_64 bit server install
    http://layer1.cpanel.net/


    as well as the cpanel installer. couldn't be easier. You have some learning to do. But ensim is like riding a donkey with herpies that likes to stop and eat every 10 minutes :D LOL

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answer (I could not login with my first login anymore...)
    As a new user, where could I have found the informations about layer1.cpanel.net ?

    I will go ahead, and use the 64bits install.

    Thank you again. I hope I'll have no issue transferring all the domains and users I host into cpanel. It's going to be a huge change for the end users.

    Thanks again !

    it will be a HUGE deal but in the end they will appreachate you more for it. I suggest a week or two of getting familiar with cPanel before you try transfers. Might make sense to hire a server management firm to help you get things setup and secure and go over things with you.

    One other note - Call cPanel.
    They will help you with the transfers.

    they are serious about helping their clients.
    I see tickets resolved or at least replied to same day vs. ... weeks from the other guys

    Thank you for your help !

    I contacted the help desk today. We tried to import one account from my en*im box with no success for now. I hope this is going to work. From what I played with on the WHM, cPanel looks pretty cool :D

    I was thinking... If this is not working...

    All I am thinking that I would have to manually do is..

    Create an "account" for each domain,
    import the /var/www/
    import the mysql DB
    import /etc/aliases

    Create manually all the users on each account, then import their /home/ and mail ...

    This is all I am thinking about.. I am missing something ?

    Thank you guys

    Hello David,

    I have been trying that with no success for the past 3 days.
    I have a ticket opened, that was escalated to level 2... Since then (24hrs), no answer yet.

    If you can expedite the SR, I would appreciate :)
