I noticed something weird. It might be a bug. When I copy an account from another server, using whm, some apache settings just disapear, like prefork settings, max clients, etc...

What could I do to avoid this?

prefork settings and maxclients aren't per-account settings, they're per-server settings. Of course they aren't going to transfer when you move an account. – womble Jul 28 '11 at 1:22

Well, the real way to do this is to not use any web-based admin tools (which I guess whm is). If you would copy over the actual configuration files and adapt them, this wouldn't happen.
