    new webserver how to transfer ftp users?

    Hey Guys,

    I had to rebuild out web/ftp box so I built a new one. Now how do I transfer all the ftp users to the new system without change of their passwords?

    I am able to trasnfer their directories and i added a line to the /etc/passwd of the new server but it fails.

    Please help me i have never done this before.

    Thanks
    RJ

    Would be that withing the same server? If not you will need in any case inform the customers about the changing.

    Maybe you can directly consult your hosting provider regarding this matter and request them to transfer all the account for you.
    By the way, do you transfer the account to the same hosting account or totally new hosting server? Is it necessary for you to do all the ftp account user transfer?
    Cheers!
