    I'm working on a problem
    lately I'm transferring a machine from mysql 3 on cpanel 7.0 to mysql 4 on cpanel 7.4

    Now I've modified pkgacct to include the -c (complete inserts) option, so the dump actually goes through to the server, in case the mysql table on the other end has more columns. I did notice however, that the part that the script actually barfs on is part of mysqlwrap, and I can't touch it. Any chance anyone know how to get around this? The whole point of this is that the old server is somewhat cranky, and updating it to a new cpanel/mysql is more trouble than transferring the accounts to the new server with more capacity.

    pkgacct dumps the DB to a plain text file, it does not connect to the new host and transfer it. pkgacct bascally just packages everything up and builds a tarball for /scripts/restorepkg to use. Support Ticket Number:
