    Hello, that's my initial setup:

    • 1 main server where all it's hosted
    • 1 backup server where I put the cpmove files

    I have all setup using the IP failover, wich it's the one I can redirect from one server to another, the problem I get it's that cpanel it's licensed to the fixed ip. How can I license the IP failover?

    You can purchase additional licenses of cPanel/WHM at:

    Alternatively, you could manually swap the IP addresses of the primary and backup servers when your primary server goes offline and only need 1 license. The full server backups generated by WHM are .tar files so you can simply use command-line utilities supplied by your OS to restore those files.

    However, over the long-term it may be more efficient to rsync the contents of the servers than constantly generating/restoring backups. Feel welcome to submit a support ticket so our technical analysts can provide you with a list of paths and files that would need synchronization.
