    I'm trying to copy my server to another server and I put in everything correctly, the IP, username and password. This is what I get...

    It seems that you are moving files from FreeBSD to RHEL or the other way around. If yes, you'll have to make sure the dates on archives are the same. Use rsync and you md5 will match. otherwise changed date stamp on archive will return another md5 sum from original archive.

    In the process, you also might have database users and databases are not restored.

    Here is the main reason.

    /var/lib/mysql (mysql for Linux)

    /var/db/mysql (mysql for FreeBSD)

    So, you need to issue this command before starting the transfer process:

    ln -s /var/db/mysql /var/lib/mysql

    Good luck!

    in addition to the great advice from the great server support company of Mr. Andy
    i want to say
    if your old server has a full partition like /var or /usr or /tmp or even /home then it may show same error

    i remmeber it happend to me few times when i was trying to copy accounts from a server that was almost full and it took many many many time than expected to creat the tars and at last it gave the same error you provided but after i removed some lof and un necessary files i could move them with no problem
    please correct me Mr Andy if i'm wrong

    You're right on target. Any thing is possible within the context of server management.

    Cheers :)

    Both of the servers are Linx. But different OS. One is RHEL (Linux) and FreeBSD (Unix).
