OK,
I moved a site from one cPanel server to the other using the "copy an account from another server" function.
(Probably one of the neatest functions in cPanel)
I think I accidently checked the "Change DNS on sources server to point to local server" cause now it only will try to find the site on the old server (after hitting the new server) which is no longer accessible due to stupidity (actually because it was my stupidity, I probably should just call it a senior moment. :D).
Not a real big deal at this point, I am just trying to understand what the heck the process did and try to reverse it.
Can't find anything in the docs (I may be totally blind but I sure can't find it)

thanx

Yes,
all was moved correctly and pinging the site gives the correct IP.
trying to browse to the site however gives a search engine error that
it can not find the old server (the one the site was moved from, as that server was deleted).

The only thing I know in cPanel that does that would be the "Change DNS on source server to point to local server" function in cPanel, but I do not know how to get rid of whatever redirection it did.
can't find any documentation on it.... :confused:

Hello :)

You can check the .htaccess file within the account's public_html directory:

Code:
/home/user/public_html/.htaccess
Look for any redirects that may be directing the website to another URL.

Hi,

Have you checked the DNS Zone for that domain?
Go to Main >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone and take a look. (click on your domain, and than "Edit")
