Since this takes time, we suggest implementing the above commands using tmux or session, so if your machine disconnects due to an internet connection issue on your desktop the command still runs in the background.  

WHMCS Converter

Webuzo comes with a converter script that helps to convert the WHMCS cPanel hosting accounts to Webuzo. Please refer to the guide.

What Data will be Migrated?

1) All Domains – Addon, Parked, Sub-domain.

5) It covers all email-related data like accounts, forwarders, and autoresponders.

6) DNS records
7) SSL Certificates
8) Cron Jobs
9) ACL Packages
10) Users and Resellers with appropriate ownership
11) IP allocation to users and resellers
12) For All plans installed on the cPanel server the same version will be installed on Webuzo.
13) All other data needed for accessing the control panel.

Understand the difference between Converter and Importer?

The converter is responsible for converting the data on the cPanel server itself and doesn’t need a new server. Hence, no IPs are changed. As compared to importer as it does not need to transfer the files across servers. It needs a full backup of the server if in case you need to revert it for restore purposes from the backup.

An importer is required to set up a new server with Webuzo and data is moved from the cPanel server to Webuzo. Further, IPs need to be changed to run the cPanel server compared to cPanel and Webuzo. If you prefer to import the sites instead of in-place converter you can refer to this guide.
