I have a user with a reseller account at another provider and I need to figure out what is the best practice for moving all of his accounts over. I do not have root on the other server.

Thanks ahead of time.

This is very simple.

1. Login to the WHM Account and generate full backups for each account. You should send the backups to "Remote FTP Server" and enter the details of the new host. Complete this for all accounts

2. Logon to the server and move all of these backups to /home

3. Go into Root WHM and use the "Restore a Full Backup/cpmove file" option under Bakup. Just enter the usernames and everything will copy over. As long as the main account is copied, all accounts will remain property of the reseller, and not root.

Hope this helps.

The datatases would be restored with the method I said. Your servers probably have different versionf of MySQL.

You cannot go to MySQL 4.1 > 4.0 without editing "charset" since version 4.0x does work the same way as 4.1x.

You will need to locate each MySQL dump file, and edit so that the type is myisam, not myisam latin etc etc.
