    Hello guys,

    Maybe someone can help me...

    Is there any way to restore an account with another username?

    For example, I have a wordpress website under account "xxx" and domainX.com and now I want to move this website to my account "yyy" in domainY.com.

    Can this be done via /scripts/restorepkg?
    Is it possible? If yes, whats the best method?

    Please advice, thanks!

    It might be easier to backup the wordpress files and database manually, upload them to the new account, and then modify the WP configuration file for the new domain. This tutorial may be of some use:
