Hello,
I have a server with CentOS 6 that is stopped upating in cpanel v86
To do the upgrade, I buyed a new server that is already working and configured, and it has cpanel v88
Now, the Transfer Tool has a warning message about transfering between different versions.
But, I can not actually update one neither downgrade the other.
So the question is, there is any real possible problem if I transfer the accounts across this versions?
Any advice will be welcomed.

Hello @mfigge

Thank you for contacting cPanel!

You may see a warning such as the following:

The source server is not running the same major version as the target server. cPanel highly recommends that the source server runs the same major version for at least 24 hours to ensure any data conversions have completed.

If you cannot upgrade your 86 server to 88, then you can proceed with the transfer. Any errors that may be encountered during the transfer will be logged and you can review all of the logs post-migration at WHM >> Review Transfers and Restores.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
