How to move a whmcs installation


Recommended Posts

Hi there. It is with great sadness that I learned that the softlayer is closing down a datacenter, and of course, the data center that I'm using. So I will need to move all my stuff elsewhere. I was wondering if just doing plesk backup - restore at new site is enough for whmcs, or are there any other gotchas I need to be aware of? PS: The IPs will definitely change..


Thanks! -turgut

Don't have experience of Plesk, but should be easy enough

Put WHMCS into Maintenance mode

Backup the HTML content

Backup the MySQL database

Import the HTML content, change any permissions if required (if they did not transpose)

Import the MySQL database

Login to WHMCS, check the clients, products, services, email templates, etc

Once it all looks as it should, remove the Maintenance Mode


cPanel is even easier, just backup the entire site and then import
