    I own my own VPS. I've had it for about 3 months now. My friend has his own VPS company, and will be hosting me for cheaper. Anyway, when I switched to the VPS I had to transfer all the accounts 1 by 1, is there a way to backup all accounts on the server (home directory, accounts, ftp acc. subdomains, mysql..etc) at one time?

    Just the thought of doing each account, one by one again makes me so sick.

    I will have root access on both servers. Please help me! :)

    Thanks in advance,

    If you're looking just to migrate the accounts including ftp accounts, subdomains, mysql, mail, home directory etc. (not the server settings as well, e.g. custom EasyApache profiles) - I recommend logging into your new server and in WHM go to the Transfers section and click on Copy Multiple Accounts from Another Server.

    In this wizard, you will be prompted on whether to use Express Transfer, I recommend doing that. This will migrate the accounts over to the new server then once an account has been migrated, that account's DNS on the old server now points to the new server to minimize downtime.

    If you encounter any issues with this migration, feel welcome to have our technical analysts assist:

    Express Transfer Issue - ASAP - URGENT!


    I tried using the express transfer between 2 VPS's both that have the newest cPanel & WHM.

    You can see my issue here. . . I really need it resolved ASAP, I can be reached on skype (brianjking) or @brianjking on twitter.

    PM me for exact login details for either VPS (old VPS @ VPS Hosting - Virtual Private Servers - HostV VPS) and new VPS is at (Dedicated Servers | Managed Dedicated Servers | Web Hosting | VPS | Liquid Web)

    Please help! My customers are clawing at my neck to get this fixed.

    It seems my DNS is still using the old DNS from the hostv VPS although I want to manage it through the liquidweb new VPS; which the express transfer should have completed.

    Additionally when viewing http://ip/~username I see different issues then which makes absolutely no sense. :confused:

    Additionally when viewing it incorrectly renders the about us page & contact us pages; although these pages rendered properly on the old VPS and rely on the same CSS file; so nothing should have changed in the transfer. Only 1 domain was affected by this; although this is the client that really is hounding me to get this resolved. :eek::(

    Thank you! Hope to get this resolved ASAP! :)
