One thing you’ll probably run into sometime is changing the hostname and IP address of a cPanel machine.. whether you’re cloning it for a quick start or if you’ve taken it over.. moving it to a different datacenter, etc..
This is based on CentOS 6…
First, grab a license for the new IP address you’re going to use..
Next, edit the following files with the new information and restart the network:
Next, remove /etc/.whostgrft (this will restart the cpanel setup screen)
Next, edit /etc/wwwacct.conf
Log into whm as root and run through the setup..
Next, run /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
Afterwards, you’ll find some other files that still may have old info.. here are some:
You might still see old info in the httpd.conf file, so manually edit it and run:
If you come across other changes that need to be made, please comment below!
