    Hi,
    I have Ensim WEBppliance Pro 3.5.20-10 and I want to move to cPanel. My host will take care of the installtion but how would I move the sites and databases? If I do a backup of the server with Ensim's utility, will cPanel be able to import it?

    Good decision :)
    cPanel can import the sites from your existing Exim server.
    When starting the import, you have to make sure root or a user that is allowed to su can login via ssh using password.
    Once you have arranged that, you can tag the sites you want to import.
    Works pretty well - apart from the databases. Most likely, you will have to dump and restore them manually.
    And no, cPanel cannot handle Ensim backup files natively AFAIK.

    Unfortunately, the problem I'll run into is that there is no way to use the import utility because there aren't two servers. Only one server and I'll need to export and then import again. Also, I've read that the import utility doesn't work Ensim Pro. Has that changed?
