    I am copying accounts to a new server manually using the /scripts/pkgacct and /scripts/restorepkg scripts. I cannot use the web interface b/c there is a problem (tha tmany people are having) when going from Linux to FreeBSD and the gzip checksums not matching up on the systems. I got around this by doing it from CLI manually, which is not a problem at all.

    However, there is still one issue. When I copy the account to the new server the account's password no longer works and I have to reset it. I'm guessing its b/c the auth system on FreeBSD and Linux are different. Was just wondering if anyone can think of a workaround or anything for this...
