Migration Cpanel to Plesk

Hi, I have one server yet i'm not satisfied with it.
The thing is I need a bigger server, but at the same time I'm having problems with cpanel and centos and I'm quite bored. So now I want to migrate from my cpanel server to the plesk server keeping the domain and it's content. I tried cpanel forums they said they cannot help me, I tried to create a ticket in plesk support but either I didn't bought the server yet. So, what's the quickier and safest way to migrate? Is there any script? Please explain with as much detail as possible because it is my first time.

I'm not a cPanel or Plesk expert, but I've dabbled in both -- along with Webmin. If Plesk should happen to include a migration tool for your situation, that's what you will want, and even then you'll need to proceed with caution. (I have no idea whether one exists, BTW.)

The thing to keep in mind is these web-based front ends (cPanel, Plesk, et al.) mangle config files on your server into their own specific, pseudo-proprietary* format, and if you or another process comes along and mucks with those, things start to break.

The "quick", "safe" way is to grow your available capacity without migrating. If your hosting provider doesn't offer that capability, the next best thing would be to order a capacity upgrade that they support. If you insist on changing hosting providers and front end management utilities, then be prepared to take backups and start from scratch.


* It's still text-based, and it is still more or less readable, but their parser expects configs to be in a specific place and in a specific format.
