    It's much better to use a Full Website Backup than try to do this with partial backups. Make a Full Website Backup of your Reseller Account's cPanel Account first. Then restore that on the VPS by placing the file in /home (not /home/USERNAME) and in the Backup section of WHM, using the restore cpmove file functionality to restore the file. Then repeat this for the remainder of your accounts.

    If you had root SSH access to the old server, you could just use the Transfer tools, but that access is essentially unheard of for reseller accounts.
