Where are Virtual Host containers? Don't have /usr/local/apache/conf/userdata dir

So here's what I'm trying to do, and the problem I'm having.

Trying to do: 1) Change IP on multiple accounts, then 2) Modify Virtual Host container so it responds on original and new IP address. This is so the site doesn't appear to go down while the IP change propagates.

Problem I'm having: I'm told by documentation ( http://www.cpanel.net/support/docs/ea/ea3/customdirectives.html ) that I should find each virtual host container at /usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/1/example.com/something.conf, but I don't have the ./userdata directory in ./conf.

Any suggestions for either the main goal, or my failure to find the appropriate locations for the virtual containers? I've only got about 20 sites to migrate, so I don't mind doing it by hand...

Thanks! :D
