CPanel Migration to Dreamhost

Note: I only had this work once
  1. Enter into cPanel and create a backup of the site
  2. Upload the backup to the user dir @ dreamhost for the site
  3. cPanel Importer ->cPanel package that I have uploaded already
  4. Import Data
Note: Seems like dreamhost does not import the SQL databases so a manual import and restore may have to be done

Now I just take the backup, extract it, copy the files manually, do the databases...good to go.

Does this copy permissions??!


Moving Database

Use phpmyadmin click the database you would like to move, select all tables, export, custom:


Export to SQL

Create new and import

Edit config files if needed.
