Hello error to copy multiple accounts urget

Mass Copy Accounts and Packages...
As seen via http://www.cpanel.net/docs/whm/Copy_...her_server.htm

I have tried to use the mass package / account copier with the latest CURRENT cPanel setup on both servers. However, here's where the ouch kicks in. I am not able to transfer accounts due to the fact that it hangs when the "Copy" button is pressed after the package and account check box selection.

Generating Account Information from Remote Server
Fetching Domain Information... Done
Detected WHM 11.24.1+

Fetching Package Information... Done
I select all the packages and accounts (only 15 or so accounts) and it just does nothing after clicking that little "Copy" button. Yes, i get the alert about not navigating away and what not. But it's done absolutely nothing. I watched active processes on the servers as well as watching for bandwidth transfer occurring on either of the servers. Nothing happens.

The server that I am copying from is:
cPanel 11.24.4-R33562 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
CENTOS 5.2 i686 on standard

The current server is:
cPanel 11.24.4-R33472 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
CENTOS 5.2 x86_64 on standard

Any help would be appreciated.

edit; forgot to mention i've waited a good 6 hours now for any transfer to even begin.

If you have root access on both servers then

Create backups of the accounts using

/scripts/pkgacct username
Then scp it to the new server

scp file [email protected]:/home
Then restore the copied files on the new server using

/scripts/restorepkg username

Hope this helps.
