This is a question that I asked buycpanel. My question was not answered very well. I am moving from a shared host to a VPS. I have copied/cloned our websitr site to the new VPS which resides on digitalocean.
Both sites, above, are operational. The site has a shopping cart with a database. It would be much easier to use Cpanel and create the database with the Cpanel and have the new site on the VPS fully operational before changing the name servers. Bottom line, I want to install the Whm/Cpanel to new vps before changing the name servers at Godaddy. (ip address 45.55.158.xxx)
Can this be done. Do I need to uninstall Apache before installing WHM/Cpanel Would my fully qualified hostname be my CentOS droplet name which includes the domain name of our current site. (The name server at godaddy still points to the old server. Is this OK?
