    I was wondering if there is any way to "backup" cpanel and whm configurations. Our provider found a faulty HD on our box and is going to give us a new server to switch everything over to. Is there a way that I can just transfer a couple config files over instead of having to set everything back up?

    Why dont you have them mount the failing drive as a secondary drive in the new server them do a rsync to the new primary?

    Primary HD was currupt. and was currupting files and such. They are going to install and new OS and cpanel and such.


    If I did what you said. Most of the files still be corrupt.

    :rolleyes: I was not talking about CPanel and the OS. I was talking about the user data. 99% of everyone who has a failing drive will retrieve their data by having the drive mounted as a secondary or whatever so they can retrieve the USER DATA! Besides, you really should have backups, then you wouldnt be in such a big bind trying to restore your data.

    Go on, have a guess
    Most of what you want will be in:

    /var/cpanel/packages/
    /var/cpanel/features/
    /var/cpanel/cpanel.config
    /etc/wwwacct.conf

    If you copy those dirs/files you'll have a head start after which you can then restore the account backups.
