    We're adding a new cPanel server (have existing) and would like to make sure all the configurations (not accounts, just things like tweak settings options, etc) are identical between the two servers. Is there a way to do this other than just manually going through all the settings? How have others handled this sort of thing to keep configurations clean and consistent between multiple servers?

    I have been wondering this too. I have manually set our servers but a sync script would be very nice.

    You mean for duplicating system settings and configs? Not necessary cpanel settings?

    Yes, there's a linux tool for this... GNU cfengine


    Haven't tried it yet myself... but I saved the info on it for when it became practical to set it up and use it.

    He is referring to cPanel settings. This would be useful as most people add custom stuff to thier exim configs (through the advanced interface in WHM), and there are a jillion settings in tweak security, tweak settings, initial setup and what not that people would like to keeo consistant between servers. I myself would find this useful as well.

    Give us clustering!

    Well needless to say we ended up doing it manually. And will be using cfengine for other things.... please bring us in the 21st century and add some real clustering to cPanel! :)
