How to transfer a SWPanel service to a new SWPanel account

In this manual we explain how to migrate content between services with different names and between two SWPanel customer accounts.

In this case, we will use the services hosting1.swmanuales.com (origin in customer account A) and hosting2.swmanuales.com (new in customer account B) to perform the process.

Previous recommendations

In order to carry out the migration of a Hosting service you will need the following information:

  1. To synchronize the content of the Web.

    • IP of the Origin Web Server
    • Web Path (Default is '/var/www/domain.tld/data/web')
    • Copy Web content via FTP
    • FTP User
    • FTP Password
  2. To synchronize the Database

    • Source Database Server IP
    • Database Name
    • Database User
    • Database User Password
  3. To migrate the email content, since they are Hosting services with different names, you must do it manually through the following manual.

We recommend that you compile it before starting the process, as it will be easier.
