    Hi,

    I recently had hard drive errors. The dc replaced the hd.. Installed RH 9.. and I installed cPanel. (took forever might I add)

    Anyhow im in, logged in.. configured mostly everything.

    Now to add the accounts back.. OMG.. how the hell do I go about this.. is the first thing I ask myself...

    Ok copy the old /home/ dir over to the new /home/ bad idea.. might overwrite something that is required. Individualy copy files over.. ok... What about emails? mySQL db's?

    How should I go about doing this?

    Now I know you can copy accounts over using the cPanel transfer thingy.. but I cant specify a different partition.. obviously its gonna look at the current running cpanel.. Not the /backup (which is the old hd)

    What should I do.. I need help ASAP.. server been offline 5+ hours :(

    So just to clarify, you don't have access to the backup files that cpanel created?

    ok I just moved the db's ... now to just worry about the emails...

    to move the db's I just moved all the folders from

    /backup/var/lib/mysql

    to /var/lib/mysql

    they show up in phpmyadmin so now to create the accounts and link them.

    hopefully I can figure out how to do this.

    Nice list. I bookmarked it since I will probably be upgrading in a month or 2. :)
