Hi Aeve-

Have you tried the following:

1.) Log in to your old cPanel account. Select Backup Wizard, " Backup ". Select Full backup.

2.) Click "Download" when the backup completes. The backing-up and the download could take up to 45 minutes but depends on the account size.

3.) Log into your new cPanel. Click "Backup Wizard," "Restore," "Home Directory."

4.) Click "Browse" to find the backup file you saved from the old server. Click "Restore." You may have to enter your new cPanel password.

I'm wouldn't think the /scripts/pkgacct would work for this as the usernames would be different but maybe someone that has tested this would know more.

Also, if using any type of CMS, you may need to edit the config file adding the new domain information.

Hi,

I think the better option is to copy the public_html to the new site rather than using the automated scripts. If it is some wordpress site, change the url in the database also.

Why don't you just change the domain of the account?
