    I need to move my site from my one hosting provider, to another. They both use Cpanel.

    If I just do a backup, will it keep all my previous logs? I have about 2 years worth of logs and I'd like to keep them.

    Please advise.

    I would suggest logging in via SSH and just tar'ing up your log folders and saving them locally to your desktop. In this way you will have your logs incase you need to reference them for a client or 3rd party, and can just move your client sites over to the new server and start fresh.
