    I want to transfer all of my accounts from old server to new server using "whm->transfers-> Copy multiple accounts from another server ", but I have questions about this field "Authentication:"
    1. Login as :
    which one should I choose? root or user(default)?
    2. Select authentication method:
    which one should I use? Password or Public Key (default)?
    3. --username --password
    username and password of old server?
    4. Select an installed SSH Key:
    Is this necessary? I do not have one. How could I install it?
    5. Choose a root escalation method:
    which one should I choose? su or sudo?

    cPanel Access Level:
    Root Administrator
    It dependes how you access your server, if you can login as root then just select "login as root" and supply the root password for your old server. You can the ignore the other options.

    Hey,

    Well doing the way I posted above, is ment for more then one transfer as for huge files. If you are using the WHM online transfer method it should work the same, however you may run into problems and so on. I like the method I posted above. Its nice clean simple and fast...

    From,
    Adam
