    Have two cpanel reseller accounts with namecheap (so i dont have root access, only basic WHM access).
    Whats the best way with lowest downtime to migrate the reseller acocunt contents (around 60 resold accounts with 40GB+ data) to a new full root WHM server?

    Hello :)

    You could transfer each account individually by using the following option on the destination server:

    "WHM Home » Transfers » Copy an Account From Another Server With an Account Password"

    It's not possible to transfer multiple accounts at the same time if you do not have root access to the source machines.

    Thank you.

    So you mean in my case if i have 30+30 resold accounts on my 2 reseller accounts, i will need to initiate transfer 60 times? That would cost me whole day and i dont wish to cause my sites downtime more than 10 minutes (all have same nameservers set). Any other way to transfer please?

    You could generate full backups of each account and then restore them on the destination server. Beyond that, there is no other way to transfer the accounts without root access. Note that transferring an account does not terminate it on the source server. You could transfer them, and then wait until propagation before terminating the accounts on the source server.

    Thank you.
