Migrate Multiple cPanel Accounts

Before proceeding remove any existing backup file under /home directory using the command below:

rm -rf /home/cpmove-*

Lets create the list of accounts we wish to migrate using the below commands.

cat /etc/trueuserdomains | awk '{print $2}' > /home/accountlist

Suppose that you have 100 accounts and wish to move only 50 account, For this use the command below:

cat /etc/trueuserdomains | awk '{print $2}' | head 50 > /home/accountlist

If  we are moving only 50 account use the below steps to create list of another rest of accounts.

cat /etc/trueuserdomains | awk '{print $2}' | tail 50 > /home/accountlist

Now we can create backups of accounts in the list using the below command:

for i in $(cat /home/accountlist); do /scripts/pkgacct --force $i; done

Once backup is created copy the backups to the new server:

scp cpmove-* [email protected]_server_ip:/home

Now we copy the account list:

scp /home/accountlist  [email protected]_server_ip:/home/accountlist

Now login to the new server

Restore all the accounts using the below command:

for i in $(cat /home/accountlist); do /scripts/restorepkg --force $i; done

Done.
