    Is there a posted guide to move an account from enkompass to cpanel? I'm currently on a trial version of cpanel and would like to test a website out on it before purchasing a license.

    Hello :)

    There are no native tools available to migrate an account from Enkompass to cPanel. Depending on the content, you could create the account on the cPanel server and manually upload the data associated with the website through FTP.

    Thank you.

    Oh wow really? The static content shouldn't be much of a problem, but what about the databases?

    You can create new Database from cPanel > Databases> MySQL database and restore db backup from old server using phpMyAdmin or shell access.

    Make sure to change the new database details in contents as well.

    Yes, the instructions in the previous post should work. Note that you can also restore a database directly through the cPanel interface under the "Backup" option.

    Thank you.

    Is this a process you've successfully completed without issue?

    I wonder if it might be worth dropping migrations a line Migrate to cPanel | cPanel, Inc.

    If you've got a large number of accounts it'd be nice if they could help you to retain your custom (given that Enkompass is a dead parrot now)

    I apologize for the inconvenience, but our migrations team only handles Linux-to-Linux migrations, and does not do Windows-to-Linux migrations of any kind, even from Enkompass. A migration from Enkompass should be treated as a manual migration, and we have a document that provides some information about manual migrations:

    http://forums.cpanel.net/f338/manual-migrations-cpanel-unsupported-control-panels-166658.html

    The document concentrates on the locations where cPanel stores data, and it can be helpful for a migration from an unsupported control panel, a server with no control panel, or a Windows server.

    Thanks! The migrations are slow going but are coming along without too many surprises.
