    Hello,

    I want to transfer an account from a cPanel server to another one.
    I am seeing this error:
    Account Creation Status: failed (Sorry, a passwd entry for that username already exists.)

    what should I do?

    Regards
    Hamed

    Hello :)

    It looks like an account with that username already exists on the destination server. Try using a different username in the "Local Username" field when transferring the account. Or, terminate/modify the existing username on the destination server.

    Thank you.
