transferring host and whmcs


Recommended Posts



I have an existing install of whmcs 3.6.1 (which is paid monthly by the host as a freebie), and am in the process of transferring the domain and website etc to an alternative host. I'm going to be getting a monthly license of my own for whmcs on the new host.


What would be the best way to do the whmcs transfer?


Set up a new install of whmcs 3.8.1 and transfer just the database into it?


Transfer the entire thing, purchase the new license, then upgrade?


Something else?


I only have a few clients on the existing installation, but I've spent a long time tweaking the setup and integrating it into my existing website etc. Also, there are only a few accounts on the existing host, but loads on the new host which is an amalgamation of 3 different hosting packages I had. I'd like to add them all into whmcs on the new host.

as your licence was purchased from a whmcs reseller i dont think you can relicence it this way, but you can check this out with matt at whmcs.com.

All you need to do is backup up your database and the configuration.php file and any templates you have configured. once this is done you can upload your site and whmcs as normal. if this is a new whmcs upload then change the configuration.new.php with your save configuration.php file and then set up a new database using the details in your configuration.php file and then upload your saved database file and thay should be it
