    Hello!

    I want to upgrade my server - to change the machine with a new one. So I need to copy the whole information from the old HDD to the new one. Maybe I must make an image of the whole file system from the old hard disk and then to restore it on the new one, but I'm not sure how to do it. Can you give some tips about that?

    Thanks in advance for the answers!

    Viktor

    Best way is basically to migrate from one machine to the other, rather than try to backup/restore...

    You'll need to get the new machine up and running with cPanel, then begin the migration process. The 15-day test license from cPanel is perfect for this scenario...
