How to migrate from old server (Hostgator VPS CentOS 5) to DigitalOcean CentOS 7?
First of all I have successfully created a new droplet and installed WHM & Cpanel with test domain name following DigitalOcean tutorials.
I have more than 10 websites with their domains,emails (Google) and databases, and I have dozens of Facebook Apps and web applications on the server Hostgator VPS CentsOS 5.
I want to migrate everything on my old server to DigitalOcean, already created backup of my server using Cpanel Backup Wizard the backup size is 11 GB.
Will the restore on my new server work without any issues? since I'am migrating from different OSs version.
I want to use the same Hostname and nameservers in my old server, should I just delete DNS records, delete hostname and nameservers to be able to use on the new server?
