    The old thread that I need is no longer available, it used to be at http://support.cpanel.net/obb/read.php?TID=2833 . What I need is a list of the folders and files to backup to be able to move CPanel users from one server to another in one go, by copying config files, user files etc over. Has anyone still got that list?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    Does no one know? Someone must have the list of files somewhere, or if Nick can find the old post that had the list please?

    /usr/share/ssl
    /var/cpanel
    /var/lib/mysql
    /var/log/bandwidth
    /var/named
    /var/spool/cron

    files:

    /etc/domainalias
