    We've a new reseller to copy, the old isp also uses cpanel.

    How can we copy his 230 accounts without root pw from the old server?

    I've access to whm (only reseller functions enabled) but NO shell.

    We can't transfer each account separately because nobody knows the passwords for all accounts and we must finish this job in 2-3 hours (time-frame for dns changes etc).

    I tryed to copy the account which owns the other account (the master reseller account) but don't works (copy only one domain, the domain of the master account).

    I've absolutely no idea how to do this fast... :(

    you will need to log into each cpanel and make a full backup and move them over one at a time to the new server to speed things up move the backups to a publicly accssable directory
    and use wget to move them if your a fast typer you could posiby get it done in 3 hours depending on how big the sites are and if you are good with the comand line

    No real way to make the transistion fast and easy easy :(
