we are losing some IP's on our server and need to transfer all our named-based sites to a new IP

What would be the BEST way to go about this?

Just looking for some advice before we go about this.

My guess would be, make all accounts under 1 reseller, change that resellers named-based ip use to the IP we are moving to... will that change everyone over? zone files and apache records??


anyone know? am i on the right track?

No it won't.

Easiest way would be search and replace.

In a ssh session, try this:

cd /var/named/

perl -p -i -e 's/oldip/newip/gi' * (example: perl -p -i -e 's/10.10.10.10/20.20.20.20/gi' *)

cd /etc/httpd/conf/

perl -p -i -e 's/oldip/newip/gi' httpd.conf (example: perl -p -i -e 's/10.10.10.10/20.20.20.20/gi' httpd.conf)

And restart bind and apache.

This should do the trick, I take no responsibility though, do at your own risk.

Just to add - You also need to do this in
/var/cpanel/users

This is were the package info for each domain is held and it does contain the ip's as well.

Yep, just looked at one of mine. And the IP is listed.
