    Best possible way to move to a new server

    Hello everyone
    We finaly purchased a new server, and we were wondering, what is the best possible way to move all our clients to a new server? We are new to running our own hosting business, but we are not new to the hosting enviroment.

    Any tips are would be wonderful!

    We are using cPanel (latest) and WebHosting Manager. We're on RedHat -- moving to the same OS.

    EDIT:
    our old server Specs:
    Dual Intel Xeon 2.4GHz
    1024MB (1GB) DDR RAM
    Dual 80GB HardDrives
    RedHat Linux 8

    Well. Use the account transfer function in WHM. That's the easiest and fastest especially since you have root on the previous server as well.

    if your new and old servers are using cPanel, you can use Transfers feature in WHM for copying data.

    Thank you
    I went to our new WebHosting Manager, to setup an account, and noticed all 200+ accounts have already been transfered! I guess while I was away yesterday, Gary (co-founder) had transfered everything!
    All we need to do now is wait for the DNS and other stuff to update!

    but remember to inform to your clients, especially to who has forums, to close their forums. otherwise, they will lost posts, because in the time DNS updating, sometimes they're pointed to the old server, sometimes to the new server

    We have informed them before the move, that any data won't be saved after 11:00pm, CST, Saturday. Everything is was saved, and moved.
