    Hi to everybody...
    there is a way to transfer an account without using WHM (I don't have root password in my old server and the account trasfer seems don't working)? I've tried to use the backup and the restore of cpanel and all is good, but I can't transfer email account and so... there is a way to transfer using Cpanel the email's accounts?
    Thank you

    Contact your hosting provider. I'd guess that they can do it for you with WHM.

    I have access to WHM in my new server (with root access) and in my old server (without root access). I think that I can solve the problem lonely... I'm wrong? :rolleyes:

    It worked for me when I used "Copy an account from another server with account password" Make sure you use that option.

    I have the same situation as you. It copied the whole account as well as the mail accounts.

    Goto your Cpanel on the old server and run the Full Backup from Backups, this will download a .tar file on your local machine.
    Upload this tar file on the new server and run this scripts as root:
    /scripts/restorepkg <username>
    <username> is your user name on the old server.

    You will have every bit of your data from old server to new server and if you have already created an account on the new server then change the username and domain name or this script will not run.
