Scenario:

When starting a DoOO project, your institution may already have existing sites hosted elsewhere that you want to migrate to Domain of One’s Own. (I recommend reading through the Migrations & Transfers category if you need additional assistance with migration workflows.) Maybe your school has existing WordPress sites with custom themes and plugins, and perhaps you’re working with a developer to move them over to DoOO. The following guide will work for any administrator as well, but in the event that you want to hand out only partial access to the person doing the work, keep reading:

Workflow:

1) Developer is given the user’s cPanel credentials
2) Developer logs in directly to user’s cPanel account at https://cpanel.yourDoOOproject.edu
