I recently had to manually migrate a cPanel account (and all the websites and email accounts within it) to a new web host. I had BackupBuddy to migrate the sites super-easily, but the email accounts remained a problem. Not only were they full of emails but I didn’t have the email account passwords as well.
After Googling around I found the answer. Just copy the
etc directories to the new cPanel account. The
mail directory contains all the email messages, while the
etc directory contains all the settings. Simple!
And how do you copy the directories between servers? You could download it to your computer and up again to the new server, but this is where learning how to use the unix command scp comes in handy

It’s the last week to take advantage of great deals at everyone’s favorite furniture and lifestyle store. The IKEA sale is on until this Sunday, 25th March.
Zack’s play area in our living room
Pei Chyi, Zack and I paid a visit to the store at the beginning of the sale and bought this cute KRITTER table and chair set for Zack to arrange his alphabet blocks and play with his Play-doh. It wasn’t on sale, but we needed it and there are so many other things that are on sale. Here are some of the great deals that we saw. Continue Reading

My love affair with IKEA continues, this time with me visiting IKEA all the way Down Under.
Earlier this month Zack, Pei Chyi and I went for a vacation in Melbourne. Well, it was a part working holiday because Pei Chyi’s company was running a trade show there. That meant that she was busy during the day and I had to watch Zack alone.

During our recent trip to Melbourne one of the most fun activities we did was to visit the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. The park is a 25-acre bushland on the Mornington Peninsula – about an hour’s drive from Melbourne city. It’s a place where you can observe and interact with all of Australia’s wildlife in their natural environment.
The park has all sorts of wildlife – birds, turtles, reptiles and the iconic koala bears and kangaroos. Many of the animals aren’t even in enclosures and will come right up to you, especially if you have some wallaby food which is sold at the entrance. (It’s sold as wallaby food but all the animals seem to love it).
25-acres sounds huge but we walked the entire park – slowly with little Zack – in about 90 minutes. We could have covered it faster too, or taken even more time by exploring every nook and cranny.
The main highlight of the park are its night walks. Apparently Australian wildlife are most active and friendly at night and you can go on private tours to interact with them.
If you can’t make it for the night tour, be sure to arrive from 12 pm onwards because they have animal presentation (meet-and-greet) sessions with the animals. Unfortunately because we were early, we didn’t make it for the 1.15pm ‘cuddle a koala’ session Do note that some of these sessions may require an additional fee.
Despite not catching any of the animal presentation sessions, we saw these animals a lot more close up than we did at the Melbourne Zoo. Continue Reading
