I just signed up for dedicated server at Softlayer with cPanel, mySQL and CentOS. I'm moving a site that is on a VPS with WHM. I know that cPanel has a transfer site feature.
I was considering hiring a service to migrate my site and to harden my server. Is this necessary or should I simply move it via cPanel? Things are tight and I don't want to incur an unnecessary cost if I don't have to. I defer to the members here at WHT for your recommendations.
Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS Panel version 11.5.30 Update #45
The data stored in roundcube webmail (like contacts and signatures ), located in the database table "roundcubemail", is not transferred when migrating the whole server, customer or the domain that uses it. Also in the backup server, account, domain this data is not included.
I think it's a real problem if a customer with many mailboxes, who only uses roundcube, needs a backup or wants to migrate to another server. Ok, this data could be exported in rounbcube with a few mouse clicks, but itÂ´s not very comfortable. In my opinion this should be included in the backup and also in the migration process (migration manager).
I have a new Server (CentOS Linux 7.1.1503) and will migrate the Data from my old Server (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) with the Migration Manager. Both Servers running with Plesk 12.0.18
After i entered the Server-IP and the Login-Data for the old Server i became this Error on the new Server:

I have 100+ sites on this hard drive, and one site in particular that meant the world to me.
My host sent the drive to Gillware first, but they failed saying that the file system was so severely damaged that they could not recover anything.
Then shortly after, my host sent it to DriveSavers, a very well-known company, but they also FAILED.
I'm extremely depressed because of this. Please don't post if you're going to say "make sure you do backups next time" because I've heard it 504329504395 times now, and while I do realize my mistake, saying that does NOT help me.
I am willing to spend ALOT to get my sites back. I still have hope. Are there any other companies out there BETTER than DriveSavers? Assuming that you'd still have hope even after two companies failed, where you would you go or what would you do?
We have 2 servers SQL, Web & SM 4.x each with and have about 40 sites and we wish to migrate them to Virtual sever for the ease of management & some cost saving. We are thinking of taking good configuration box with Win2k8 server and planning to run VMs over Hyper-V.
I've been getting frustrated with my hosting provider, and after doing application development and sysadmin for a while now, I'm ready to have a go at doing it all myself on a VM. I plan on migrating my site to the new server and when everything is set up, pointing my domain to the new name servers...
My question is - what's the best order to do things to minimize downtime? Can I set up email, MySQL, Apache, DNS etc before I have the domain pointing at the new server, while still being able to test adequately? Would I just set up the services and test them using the IP, then once I'm happy with everything, setup DNS, point domain at new nameservers, then change all configs to use the domain name rather than the IP? In theory if it email etc works with the IP, then the name server change shouldn't matter because it will resolve to the IP...
How can I find the data transfer rate on the server. I have done ifconfig -a , it display the amout of data has been received and transfered. I want to see the live data transfer date. Can I able to check it?
I am migrating my website to Hostgator, and before I change the DNS entries, I want to make sure that everything displays properly. To do this, I have added an entry into my /etc/hosts file pointing the domain to the new host. If I then ping the domain, the reply comes from the correct IP address. However, if I try to view the website, it is still served by the old host.
I thought it might be a caching issue, but I have checked with wireshark and using curl, and it is definitely connecting to the new IP address, but the server that is returning the pages is still the old one. I've contacted hostgator support, but when they make the changes to their hosts file, it loads correctly. Is this a local problem (my system), or something with their server configuration?
I transfered my forum from one server to another. ips changed. Before the transfer, I closed the board and put an announcement. After the transfer I opened the board and started posting.
Now, there are other members who've posted after the transfer but I've noticed decrease in activity. One of the members emailed me and told me that the board is still closed for him with the announcement shown. That message is from the old and not the new server. So how is this happening? What should he or I do? I and some other members can access and post normally.
Its been a for a couple of hours that my VPS is down, I'm not complaining or anything, I really know that Navid left one hell of a mess for them to sort out but I just want to be sure that my VPS is down because of the migration process and not because of something I did.
Anyways I submitted 2 tickets, still no reply. The guys must be busy fixing and moving all these accounts
