    Hello WHM experts -

    I have transferred all my accounts from "server A" to my new "server B" using the transfer feature in WHM.

    Everything went perfectly. It's been a couple of months, and all domains are working as they should.

    Here's my question: while looking at /var/cpanel/users/ files I noticed that all of the user files still listed my old servers' IP address!

    Should I take the time to change them all to my new servers' IP address or not? Like I said, everything is working and since it ain't broke I don't want to 'fix' it. :)


    Thanks!

    They are basically just data files for various uses so the wrong IP there won't stop the account from working but will cause some WHM functions to read incorrect data.

    I would change them if it was me.

    Thanks, Mike. Sounds like a good idea.
