    I have a couple large accounts and have never tried express transfer, I am wondering if this feature works with larger accounts or just smaller ones?

    Thanks!

    Express Transfer is available in cPanel 11.24.4 and newer. There is no size limitation with Express Transfer. The Express Transfer feature does not make the actual transfer process faster. Rather the feature modifies various DNS and Apache related configurations to direct traffic to the new server.

    What you may be thinking of is the streaming transfer method which can impart some speedup to the actual transfer. This feature skips inclusion home /home/user in the tarball that is transferred. During account creation the home directory is streamed from the original server to the destination server via a direct connection.

    Correction: There is no "select all" function in the Express Transfer screen yet. This will be implemented in 11.25. Express Transfer itself was, as Kenneth mentions, implemented back in 11.24.

    Express Transfer Issue 2

    I did this although the express transfer seemed to still host the DNS (at least secondary nameserver) to the old VPS:eek:; additionally it caused one site made with Joomla CMS to not render properly:confused:.

    I really need this resolved ASAP. Thanks! :)

    I just tried the express transfer for one account too. Both machines where dns-clustered, I did the move and I am still being directed to the old server.
    Honestly, I don't see the changes to normal transfer before.

    Am I perhaps missing something? Sure dns needs to be propagated, but I thought the express transfer has a workaround for it (like forwarding or so).

    Thanks for any hints!
