Hi,

I'm struggling big-time and am starting to get frazzled because of time constraints.

I've about 100 sites currently on Ensim 4.1 that I need to migrate to my CPanel dedicated server on hostgator.com.

The transfer form on WHM which is meant for use is a bit non-descriptive and no matter what I've tried, I can't seem to get even one account moved correctly.

Any help or pointers to *good* docs on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
-Ray

rsleventhal,

Here are some of the issues your going to run into:

- Innodb tables don't copy properly
- Ensim let's you pick your database prefix with cPanel it's admin_###. The db's will copy fine but you'll have to update the sites config file.
- Ensim's include path is /var/www/html and cPanel is /home/###/www (### is the admin user). Anything that references these paths will need to be updated.

We've been moving dozens and dozens of sites from Ensim to cPanel. It's a bit tedious but it works pretty well.
