    Hello,

    I have been using cpanel/WHM for years but this is something i never had to do and was wondering if someone could answer some questions for me...

    I am getting a new server in a week and i have to transfer my whole current server to my new one, is there a way to copy all MySql, scripts, emails, accounts, ftp's etc... from my current server to my new server without having to reinstall everything?

    Just trying to find out if there is a smooth way to do this, i have a ton of accounts, databases, emails ,etc..

    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks for your reply, Yes i know about the "copy multiple accounts", but what i am wondering is what exactly does it copy? I can't seem to find this anywhere. Does it copy the the account settings, like emails, ftps, databases, sub domains, files, etc...??

    My main concern is i have about 3 days to copy the info from one server to the other and i have about 35 domian accounts all with multiple databases, scripts, multiple emails, multiple ftp's subdomains, etc... and i just want to know if that will copy everything over, or if there is something i will have to manualy do.

    In cPanel to cPanel transfers, all settings will be copied over when using our transfer scripts for WHM > Transfers > Copy Multiple Accounts/Packages from Another Server option. These are the same as taking a full cPanel backup of an account and then restoring that full backup on another cPanel machine.

    All configuration settings should move with the account, which includes everything on the account.

    Is there a similar function for copying WHM settings and config? I'm getting ready to do the same thing, and while the *account* information transfer works well enough, I don't recall there being a way to transfer configs from WHM...
