    Restore from another hard drive?

    How I can restore the accounts from another hard drive? The situation is the harddrive is not booting up, so we put that in another server with a working WHM/cPanel. How can we move that from the accounts while keeping all the accounts settings?? Thx a lot

    i would install cpanel on the new drive, the just copy over all the old stuff...

    These files and dirs are important....

    /home/
    /etc/named.conf
    /etc/proftpd.conf
    /etc/localdomains
    /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    /etc/group
    /etc/shadow
    /etc/passwd
    /etc/domainalias
    /etc/fstab
    /root/.my.cnf
    /etc/ips
    /etc/reservedips
    /etc/quota.conf
    /etc/wwwacct.conf
    /etc/rndc.conf
    /etc/secondarymx
    /etc/my.cnf
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/interchange/interchange.cfg
    /etc/valiases
    /etc/proftpd
    /var/named
    /etc/vfilters
    /var/cpanel
    /var/spool/cron
    /usr/local/frontpage
    /var/log/bandwidth
    /usr/share/ssl
    /etc/ssl
    /var/ssl
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman


    copy all that over, run a /scripts/updatenow;/scripts/upcp and then start fixing all the minor problems :).

    I know this post is old - but I am now in that same condition.

    Running the current WHM 10.1.0c4

    If anyone can give me some additional files to copy that would be great - I have copied all these files without an issue.

    Is this verified that it's all that is needed to move a cpanel based server?

    I am creating remote ftp script that will run larger then 2 gig websites and need to know all the needed files for a full backup.

    Thnaks, Charles

    that thread is 2 years old.

    Are you telling me cpanel/whm can not do a restore from an FTP backuped site?

    I'm pretty sure at one time it could.

    This thread has nothing to do with FTP backup. It's about restoring from an old OS disk to a new one. The thread I quoted is as correct now as it was then for restoring a system under these circumstances.
