I am currently attempting to add a site to a cPanel machine when the domain name already exists within the cPanel DNS cluster. The reason behind this is to move the site on to a machine with a different version of PHP (other sites depend on an older version and installing two PHP versions isn't currently an option).
When attempting to add the site it fails with site already in DNS cluster please delete records from all DNS cluster machines and try again.
While this would be the main solution unfortunately I still need the DNS pointing to the other web server at the moment in addition to any custom records which exist (e.g. for email), I would like to take full control over the DNS instead of letting cPanel take control exclusively.
If anyone has any ideas in relation to this I look forward to hearing.
