Yesterday, i have a task from my boss to migrate email server from cPanel shared hosting to Zimbra Mail Server. For migrate all account from cPanel, i am usually create manually existing account on cPanel and reset password for all user if will migrate to Zimbra. If be able, my boss want every password of users not get change and migrating email seamlessly.

What i do for export account+password on cPanel and import on Zimbra is like following :

– Login to cPanel. Select menu Files | File Manager
– Go to /etc/yourdomain-folder
– Right click at folder @pwcache on the right pane and select compress
– Download file @pwcache.zip
– Copy the file to Zimbra server with SCP, WinSCP or something else and placed on folder /srv/
Import Account+Password cPanel to Zimbra
– Login to your Zimbra server, go to folder /srv/ and unzip the file
1.cd /srv/
2.unzip "@pwcache.zip"
3.mv "@pwcache" "pwcache"
– Make script for looping users, get password and create account
1.vi create-acc.sh
Fill with the following line
03.# Clear screen
06.rm create-account-zimbra.zmp
07.touch create-account-zimbra.zmp
08.echo "Looping for all users"
10.for ACCOUNT in /srv/pwcache/*
12.PASS=`cat "$ACCOUNT" grep passwd: | cut -d ':' -f2`
13.ACC=`echo $ACCOUNT | cut -d "/" -f4`
15.echo "Retrieve password account $ACC"

– Save, give execute access and run the script
1.chmod +x create-acc.sh
2.sh create-acc.sh
– The results of the script is file create-account-zimbra.zmp who contain with command for create account and modify password
