    Hi

    I'm trying to follow this : How to Move All cPanel Accounts from One Server to Another - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Now we have say 900 accounts on one server.

    When wew do transfers accross all goes well. We get Errors but they have [info] in them so I assume they not error but info messages only.

    Now the real issue is that it just stopped during the night without continuing but started giving mysql error:

    too many open files - MYSQL.

    I assume this is related to open_files_limit in my.cnf? I've now increased it to 100000 compared to 50000.

    Or do you think I should make it even higher to transfer the files across?

    Anyone have any tips for transferring cpanel accounts from CL6 to CL7 servers?

    Hello :)

    You could set the value to unlimited for the duration of the transfer if you are not experiencing any negative CPU/Memory performance issues. Transfers from cPanel servers running Cloud Linux 6 to another cPanel server running Cloud Linux 7 should not require any special configuration changes. The transfer should proceed like any other transfer.

    Thank you.

    Thanks. Seems good.

    Any idea if I have to worry about any of this:
