How to Migrate cPanel Accounts to CentOS Web Panel (CWP) 7 Server

Title: Migrating cPanel Account to CentOS Web Panel (CWP) 7 Server

CentOS Web Panel (CWP) is a free and open-source web hosting control panel that allows you to manage your CentOS VPS server. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of migrating a cPanel account to a CWP 7 server.

Here are the steps to migrate a cPanel account to CWP:

Step 1: Take cPanel Backup

  1. Go to cPanel >> Files >> Backup >> Download a full account Backup.

  2. Set the backup destination to your CWP server via SCP.

  3. Enter the remote server details.

    • Remote Server: Enter your CWP server IP.
    • Remote User: root
    • Remote Password: Enter the root password of the CWP server.
    • Port: Enter your CWP server’s SSH port number.
  4. Click on “Generate Backup”.

  5. The cPanel account backup will be downloaded to your /root directory on the CWP server, and the backup file will have a format similar to: backup-12.28.2018_05-31-51_user.tar.gz.

  6. Change the backup file name to the following format: cpmove-{user}.tar.gz.

  7. Log in to the server through SSH as the root user and move the backup file to the /home directory.

    mv /root/backup-12.28.2018_05-31-51_test_user.tar.gz /home/cpmove-test_user.tar.gz

Step 2: Restoration

  1. Login to CWP and go to User Accounts >> cPanel Migration.

  2. Select the backup file and click on “Import” to proceed with the restoration.

Once the restoration is completed, you will receive a message stating that the migration has been successfully completed.

By following these steps, you can easily migrate a cPanel account to a CWP 7 server using the backup and restoration functionality provided by CentOS Web Panel.
