    [RELEASE] cPanel-to-DirectAdmin account conversion tool

    This tool works by converting cPanel user backups to DirectAdmin user backups. This tool is designed to read all data directly from the cPanel user backup files; therefore, this tool can be executed on either the cPanel or DirectAdmin server.

    This tool will covert cPanel backups created by both
    - the /scripts/pkgacct script, and
    - cPanel's 'Full Backup' GUI tool.


    Latest available version (as of 03 March 2013):

    http://www.pusathosting.com/file/da....ort.9.4.tar.gz

    [i]See posts #6 and #7 of this thread.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    1/ Download and extract the version URL (from above) that you wish to use. (wget and tar xzf)

    2/ Create import and export directories for the tool to use. (mkdir import export)

    3/ Copy your cPanel user backups into the import directory.

    4/ Edit defaults.conf to match the DA server you will be restoring to. The only fields you must change are the IP and name server fields. The tool will not work if you fail to do this!

    5/ Execute perl da.cpanel.import.pl and follow the on-screen instructions (which will duplicate the steps here to a degree).

    6/ After the tool is finished converting (or as it completes each individual user), move your new DA user backups from the export directory to any DA /home/RESELLER/user_backups directory*

    7/ Restore the DA user backups in DA's reseller-level Manage User Backups tool.

    That's it!

    *If the tool is being executed on a cPanel server, you can optionally have the tool automatically transfer your new DA user backups (after all conversion is complete) to a remote server.


    ITEMS ACTUALLY CONVERTED

    As of the current beta version, the following should convert:
    • basic account allocations
    • sub-domains
    • FTP accounts
    • POP3 and IMAP accounts
    • All mail data (Maildir and/or mbox format**)
    • Squirrelmail settings
    • addon domains
    • user home files
    • mysql databases
    • domain pointers
    • crontab entries
    **If cPanel is using Maildir format and you wish to restore mail data, you must upgrade DirectAdmin (via Dovecot) to use Maildir before restoring the converted accounts. See link 1, link 2, and link 3.


    OTHER NOTES & SUPPORT

    This tool is provided at no cost and without warranty.

    If you have questions, concerns, or run into problems, please reply to this thread.

    If you wish to pay someone to convert for you, there are individuals that can help on this forum (myself included ).

    Good luck & Happy converting!

    Hello,

    Just put the crypted pass in the .shadow file... (make sure there is no newline at the end of the file). DA will use that for the new accounts.

    Nice work

    If that's the case, account passwords should be working right now!

    Also, as of today, I've lost my testing abilities on a cP server, so someone will have to confirm that it in fact does work.

    PS Anyone know how to create a cPanel backup instantaneously rather than waiting for it to run according to schedule?

    Thanks,

    Hmm.. no

    Could you trick it into thinking it's time to build them?

    Just a quick question... in default.conf, is 'owner=' the reseller that owns the accounts I'm moving?

    Also, are the tars in /export labelled by username?

    Thanks,

    In default.conf, owner= should be set to the DirectAdmin reseller you'd like to own the converted accounts.

    And yes, tarballs are labled by username.

    Found it!

    For future reference... use:

    PHP Code:
    /scripts/cpbackup 
    Make sure that you've configured the backups in your root WHM first though

    More updates soon.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Oh, one more question Phi1... if I need to change the owner, can I just edit default.conf and run the perl script again?

    Thanks,
