    Was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions.

    I have a RedHat system that the main drive is failing. I have installed a 2nd HD (/dev/hdc mounted to /backup)

    This is a WHM/Cpanel system and would like to backup everything I can to the new harddrive becuase I will have to have an OS reinstall to replace the bad drive (/hda /boot and /home etc)

    ANy suggestions? Moving the directories individually will backup the actual files in the /home/xxxxx dirs for the websites themselves... but what about the SQL databases, the Cpanel logins/users and accounts.

    Any suggestions anyone has or a link to some help files would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
