    I have a front end server connected to a database. CPanel currently knows where to look and where to place databases when I create them. I am consolidating two servers into one more powerful server in an all SSD setup so that the database is now on the same machine. How can I effectively migrate from the current server to the new server so that the databases are on the same machine in the new server and function as localhost? (Note, I do understand that I'll need to change all the configuration files for my scripts.) Thanks.

    Hello :)

    You can transfer the accounts to the destination server using the transfer tools provided in Web Host Manager:

    "WHM Main >> Transfers >> Copy Multiple Accounts/Packages From Another Server"

    You will then need to manually import the databases into the accounts on the destination server.

    Thank you.
