migration

Migration is a process of switching to Panel from another hosting solution, for example, cPanel or Confixx. Migration is performed by transferring hosting data from a server with another solution (source server) to your Panel server (destination server). Currently, Panel supports migrations listed in the table below.

Migration Steps

Migration steps are typically the following:

  1. Install the Migration & Transfer Manager utility on the destination server and prepare the source server to migration. The source server preparation steps depend on a migration scenario and may include, for example, turning off some system services, opening some TCP ports, and other. Read more about preparing source and destination servers for migration in the section Preparing for Migration.
  2. Run the Migration & Transfer Manager tool and go through the migration wizard steps. See the Performing Migration section for details on how to do it.
