Backup your site

  1. Login to your old cpanel and click "backup"
  2. Once in backup click "download a home directory backup" This will backup all your email accounts, files, and a few other things. It will not backup your mysql databases.
  3. If you have any mysql databases you will download them now.
  4. If you have any Alias/ Filter Backups download them.

You have now backed up your entire site.

Restore your site

  1. Login to your new cpanel and click "backup"
  2. Under "restore a home backup" Click "Browse" and find the home backup you have you have already downloaded, and click upload.
  3. Do the same for your mysql databases.
  4. Do the same for your Alias/Filters.

You have now restored your entire site.
