Full Restore On Remote Server
« on: September 15, 2016, 06:32:54 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I am trying to migrate to a fresh CWP server build running MariaDB 10.1 from the old one running MySQL 5.1.

I successfully setup remote backup to transfer all the \home directories and DBs then restored them each successfully through phpMyAdmin and the restore backup tab. After restoring all the databases and user directories everything seems fine but I can't get Apache to start properly as it thinks the users don't exist "Starting httpd: httpd: bad user name xxxxxx".

If I clear the vHosts file Apache starts correctly and if I create a new user on the server and only list that in vHosts there are no problems.

If I try and delete one of the restored users it says "userdel: user 'xxxxxx' does not exist" "User Account Removal FAILED! User account folder still exists!" it seems like this a suphp/suexec problem but this is getting to the limit of my experience level.

Does anyone have a possible solution? I feel like it is probably very simple and i'm very close but I just simply don't have the knowledge yet to know where to look.

Love the project and appreciate your work.

Many thanks,
