[Solved] Migrating Cloud Panel to new server

I’m new to Cloud Panel.  We are going to be migrating our existing servers from Win 2012 R2 to Win 2016 and also migrating to Exchange 2016.  Do you have a support doc that walks me through moving the Cloud Panel or is it as simple as installing on the new server and putting the settings in place?  Also the existing server is on version 3.0.901 so I also want to upgrade to the latest version of Cloud Panel.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

As long as its co-existence, all you have to do is go to the settings in CloudPanel and point to your new Exchange environment. For moving CloudPanel to a new server on that version you need to:

  • Install the same version on the new server but make it create a new database (don’t point it to your existing database)
  • Copy the Documentation folder from the old server to the new server if you use the documentation module
  • Copy the Branding folder under Content\img to the new server
  • Change the settings.xml to your existing database and recycle the application pool on the new server
