How to move a wordpress site from CPanel to Sentora (vps with ssh)
How to move a wordpress site from CPanel to Sentora (vps with ssh)
I had a lot of Heartache  - Normally with WP I just zip up the entire public_html directory copy the database and bring it accross 

Sentora didnt like the database  maybey its because its uses older versions of packages like phpmyadmin ?  Not sure but theres more then 1 way to skin a cat.

I tried a dozen plugins for wordpress that dont work (I have a multisite setup so its hard)

Duplicator Pro by snapcreek dot com actully worked although not without difficulty

Steps -
use Duplicator Pro to make your backup - ditch any huge files you might have first

zip up your directory it saved it in with cpanel

use wget to get your file from the oldserver to the new server - wget ""  it will dump it in the current directory your in so cd to the public_html

unzip the downloaded file in ssh and then theres another zip file in the extraction unzip it aswell

in step 1 in duplicator pro click the advanced tab and select manual extraction

Make a database in sentora call it zadmin_word and also make a user

Put these details into duplicator pro

Change your WP_config.php file to chmod to 777 (change it back to 644 when your done)

click next a few times and your done.

I searched high and low for a website cloner that worked   Duplicator pro actually did although it wont unzip or make new databases you must do that manually.  

You can also change your domain with this program. If you dont have ssh  your going to have to do all the unzipping on your computer

You need also to change owner to apache:apache on all unzipper files using root.

Notive if you use MySQL 5.5 and move to centos6 or ubuntu 12 you end up using MySQL and that cause a lot of issues. You may need ot export the DB to MySQL 4.x format so you can import it. A common issue I faced with WP exports.
