    Hello ! :)

    I have a big web site and I'm going to move it to a new server. When I use "/scripts/pkgacct UserAccount" I get a file which is 10 G big.

    Will this be ok or may I run into trouble ?

    Thank you. :)

    Hello :)

    There should be no issues with a 10G backup file as long as you have sufficient free space on the source and destination servers.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. :)

    I created the file using the /scripts/pkgacct command, but reading topics on this board, I've seen there is an option in WHM called "Copy an account from another server".
    Can you tell me which solution is better to migrate my website to another server ? (my website is a board)

    Thank you ! :)

    Both methods utilize the same method of packaging and restoring the account. The transfer tools in Web Host Manager make the process a little easier because it automatically backs up the account and restores it on the destination server.

    Thank you.
