So I'm going to take advantage of one of these Black Friday Deals to spin up a new VPS on Alamalinux 9, install Cpanel, then migrate some, not all of my accounts to the new server. I know for one, I'll need to install and copy the config files over for Configserver Firewall, and it's been so many years I've done various tweaks that there's no way I can remember everything (like edting the MySQL caching config, etc etc) First thing I'm wondering is if Almalinux 9 poses any additional possible issues than Almalinux 8. This is such a pain in the ass it's something I only want to do every 3-5 years so I figure get the newest O/S version WHM supports but of course the newer one will have less testing history and user experience. It appears the Transfer Tool these days has the ability to transfer quite a lot of the WHM configuration. Does anyone have a checklist or want to help start one here of other things to consider that may need to be copied over that the Transfer Tool doesn't. For example I'm not sure the Transfer Tool copied over the root cron job config. I also am guessing it won't transfer my MySQL tweaks? DNS updates are of course on the list. All my DNS records are on a 3rd party DNS host though so the Cpanel DNS records are irrelevant in my case. Also, I'm still on MySQL 5.7 - dumb me, I thought WHM would automatically upgrade MySQL all this time, but I assume going to 8 and transferring accounts is pretty painless? Thanks in advance for any info.
