Convert cPanel to Webuzo


This guide explains how you can convert your cPanel server to Webuzo. This is an in-place converter which runs on your cPanel server itself and Uninstalls cPanel and install Webuzo and converts all cPanel data to Webuzo. Everything works out of the box and all your users websites, domains, databases, emails, ftp accounts, ssl certificates everything remains intact.

Note: Please make sure you have a full backup of your VPS/Server. In case anything goes wrong you will need to restore your VPS backup as cPanel will be uninstalled from your server.


Open a Shell Terminal (e.g. PuTTY) and SSH to your as root user server. Run the following commands:

wget -N
chmod 0755

The conversion will check the requirements and then ask you for a confirmation. Please type yes and press enter to proceed with the conversion.

You can find the converter logs at :

This may take 5 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the resources available on your server and the network connection speed.

Since this takes time we recommend to execute the above commands using tmux or session so if your machine disconnects due to internet connection issue on your desktop the command still runs in background.

What is the difference between Converter and Importer ?

Converter will convert the data on the cPanel server itself and does not require a new server. No IPs are changed. Faster as compared to Importer as it does not require to transfer the files across servers. Requires a full backup of the server so in case you want to revert you can restore from the backup.

Importer requires you to setup a new server with Webuzo and data is transferred from cPanel server to Webuzo. IPs need to be changed. However if you want your cPanel server running to compare cPanel and Webuzo. If you would prefer to import the sites instead of the in place converter you can refer to this guide.
