thanks John will try that if what I am trying now doesn't work.
I currently have the original server owner on my machine to import so that he could enter in his root password and pick the domains to import. It works well on his server but it doesn't copy the files over we get this error:
Remote file is: /home/cas/cpmove-adelejon.tar.gz
Attemping to chown archive...
Unable to chown script
Also, is it possible to just upload the &cpmove& files to my server by FTP and import them from the local HD? That may be easiest at this point.
