How not to change an IP address in CPanel during a migration

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/swapip domain(s)

It simply doesn't work, the Apache VHOSTS remain 100% unchanged, why does this script exist? I'm sure it would work from the control panel but I am locked out because my IP was changed and it doesn't match the CPanel license. I wish CPanel would make it easier to update the license IP.

I even took it a step farther, I manually edited the vhosts and restarted Apache and it didn't work.

I read someone to edit the info in /var/cpanel/users/username and /var/cpanel/userdata/username but that still did not work even with a full CPanel restart.

The only way that actually works is to login into CPanel and use the "IP Migration" or "Change Multiple Sites IPs" and then it will be good. This is a drawback compared to Directadmin's easy update script that works from the command line.
