Hey there! We don't have any automated tools to move to cPanel from the Duda platform, so it might be best to review our manual migrations page here:

https://documentation.cpanel.net/di...nts+to+cPanel+from+Unsupported+Control+Panels

This explains the location of files and how they should be setup to work in a cPanel system. If you are getting server errors such as a 500 or 404 message in the browser, you could check the Apache log at /etc/apache2/logs/error_log for more details on what may be causing the issue.

Moving the html files should be a simple case of FTP from one site, FTP to the other.

Your issue may be centred around the actual HTML.
Being unfamiliar with Duda, I took a quick look, and I assume that you'd build the web site using thier own 'drag and drop' GUI, and that your web site would actually be hosted with them ???

If this is the case, then in all probability, anything you perform on your web site will be calling for scripts hosted on the Duda servers.
Your web site is unlikely to work if you hosted it elsewhere without some major coding changes, if at all..

they have an export option that will will give you all you need to run it in a different web host. This is what is stated in the Duda website as well. I think the issue how to migrate it to cpanel they said it should work without modifying anything. what I did is took all those exported files and put them in "public html" then i took the index file for the home file and I placed outside. then I check the home page everything is displayed correctly including all the css but the only issue is that its not linking to the other pages. it give me this error "Not Found The requested URL was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Hey azarroug, did you ever figure out how to move the files correctly? This post is one of the latest I could find as I'm running into the same issue.
