How to migrate a website and settings from a webhost cpanel to a new webhost cpanel ?

Hi,

Could someone tell me how i can migrate all my files and my box trapper settings, email filters etc to a new host. This is on Linux shared hosting. And its cpanelX. I did the thing where you take a full back up and got a mybackup.tar.gz file.

Then i uploaded that file into the new server cpanel into the root directory. But theres no button or feature to restore my website files and all the other settings into this new server.

FYI both cpanels are identical.

Regards

Re: How to migrate a website and settings from a webhost cpanel to a new webhost cpan

We've been learning how to do this in zPanel.

Website migration is easy enough as you said, but settings migration seems a bit lacking.

I'm not positive if it's a problem with a virtual server or not at this point.

Don't worry, you're not alone!!! LOL

I've explained this to my buddy, but he assured me that cPanel is capable of migration.

Let me get into this with him and we will find out what's going on...

I did it with all the settings, emails etc the whole jing bang comes into your new panel.

Just took a back up image using the back up feature which is in Cpanel. Then took the tar.gz file and uploaded it into my root directory and told my new hosting company where ive uploaded the file and to use that and restore my entire website and settings etc and they did it.

Saved me an awful lot of time.

If you are want to migrate one of your website to the another hosting provide you need to go to the domain control panel and need to choose the domain which is going to to migrate you need to change the IP address and the DNS name server of the particular migrated server.
