How to redefine a service in a Cloud?

Important! The redefinition of a service is in beta so we recommend making a local backup before performing the process.

The option of redefining a service in a Cloud, allows you to change a Hosting of your Cloud, either Web Hosting, Redirected or Mail to any other Cloud that you have in the Tree of active services of SW Panel.

If you only have one Cloud, you can contract another by following the instructions in the following URL:

https://www.swhosting.com/en/comunidad/manual/como-crear-un-cloud-desde-sw-panel

This function also allows you to divide your service in a modular way, for example; If you have a Cloud with all the services and you contract two new Clouds (one for the database and one for the mail) you will be able to modify the current hosting to use the database and / or the mail in a specific Cloud.

Important! When redefining services, it does not migrate CHROOT users, statistics/awstats or PHP customizations.

  • First, you have to go to the main Dashboard of SW Panel and click on Active services tree, located on the left side blue menu.

    - Captura 1 (acceso al servicio)

  • Once in "Active Services Tree", you have to go to the [···] icon of the hosting service you want to redefine. When you pass the cursor over it, a menu will be displayed, and you must click on Redefine this Hosting service.

    - Captura 2 (acceso al menú)

  • Once you are in the section to change Hosting plan, on the left you have to choose the Cloud where you want the selected service to be (Web Hosting, Redirected or Mail). In the case of Web Hosting, in the "Distribution of services between servers" section, you will have the option of assigning the mail and/or database in the Cloud that you want. Once the configuration is finished, click Next.

    - Captura 3 (Definir)

  • In this section you have to formalize the new configuration. Once reviewed, you have to click Accept and formalize.

    - Captura 4 (formalizar)

Important! We recommend that before starting the process of redefining the Hosting service you configure your website in a state of maintenance so that there are no modifications, at the file level or in the database, during the necessary period of time for redefining the service between your servers.

Important! When redefining the services, if you have activated backups, they are lost, so we recommend making a backup locally. After redefinition is complete, you have to re-enable the backup in the service.

Important! When you redefine the services, the service will automatically change the DNS to point to the redefined service so that no modifications can be made to the origin site.

Important! The source data is deleted after 5 days, so we recommend reviewing the redefinition once it is done.

  • Once formalized, the SW Panel will begin to redefine and the message "Your Hosting Plan is being changed" will appear in your service.

    - Captura 5 (estado en redifinición)

  • Once the service redefinition process is finished, the message "Your Hosting Plan is being changed" will disappear and you will be able to manage it normally through the [···] icon.
