Previously we’ve share a nice automatic trick to do cPanel account migration from old hosting server to a new one (read here). That method is pretty useful if you want to provide free “hosting migration” service for your client. In this post, we’ll show you that it is also possible to move the whole cPanel (multiple) accounts from one server to another. All done easily and automagically via WHM to minimize all your efforts.
I’ve done this to move all my websites (each has its cPanel account) from my old VPS to the new one.
How To Migrate Multiple cPanel Accounts via WHM
- Make sure you have a stable Internet connection
- You’ll need valid root password of your old server
The Process :
1- Login to WHM in your new server
2- Type “Copy” in the “Find” field
3- Then click the “Copy Multiple Accounts from Another Server”
4- A new page will open (if using Firefox it will be in a new tab)
5- Fill in all required details in “Remote Server Info” section
- You better test the connection by clicking “Check SSH Connection” button
- Do not use SSL if you want faster transfer process
6- The next section is “Authentication”,..
p.s: using root account is more reliable
7- Now click “Fetch Account List” button
8- WHM will then fetch all available cPanel accounts from your old server
9- Once done, you’ll see all cPanel accounts of your old server.
p.s: if you have already had transferred one or more accounts before, or if you have already had a cPanel account with exact same username as the one from your old server, it will be highlighted with a red color.
10- Now select which accounts you wish to copy then hit the “Copy” button
11- Sit tight and wait till the whole process complete.
You’ll see something similar like mine below..
12- Once done, a dialogue box will appear..
13- Simply hit “OK” button but remember to not clicking your browser’s back button. Simply then close that window or tab.
14- You can also review each successful transfer by clicking “View Log” link.
15- That’s it. All you have to do is now pointing all your domains’ nameserver (NS) to the new one.
