    Help please!

    I need specific instructions to backup a domain that is currently on a server that I do NOT have root access to (but SSH is enabled) and install it on a dedicated server with root access with minimal downtime/data loss.

    I have read the other posts and threads, but they all seem to give instructions on moving from one server with root access to another.

    Also, I do not have access to the whm transfer tool on the reseller server that the domain needs to be moved from - only SSH access, but I do not know the correct SSH commands.

    Please advise, thank you very much!

    Try using:

    Copy an account from another server will account password.

    Enter the ip address of the server that the account is on.
    Enter the domain name ( ... no www or http://)
    enter the username
    enter the password

    This should work fine if the account is not real huge. Doing it this way you don't need to have root access.

    Good luck
