    Transfer To New Server

    I have had my current server for about 3 years now. I am going to get a new one and transfer all the data over to it. What would be the best route to go?

    Is it possible to transfer over member's IMAP folders and mail to a new server? The clients would be mad if I had to reset all of their inboxes and email passwords.

    Transfering over the actual site content and mySQL databases is not that big of a deal, I am mainly concerned with the email folders.

    I've done twice to transfer data to the new server, it went pretty well but I had to chown ownership and permission since they weren't default cPanel backup. Use rsync via SSH!

    Yes it is possible to transfer member's mail folder to the new server, your clients won't lose their email messages.
