    Hello,

    I want to copy a cPanel's account (files and databases) on another existing account.
    Can anyone please show me how to do it via WHM or cPanel?

    I want to get rid off the old domain later on and redirect everything to the new site, after I moved all content (files and databases) to a new site.

    I appreciate your help.

    Thanks.

    If you definetly require to copy the account from one to another and remove the old account, yes you can do it.

    But i suggest you to just change the domain name, as you have mentioned it in your previous post, changin the domain name for an account is very easy.

    WHM=> Modify An account => Select the user => Change the domain name.

    Should you still require the steps to copy the account from one to another and remove the old account ?

    Let me know.

    Hello :)

    There are no native options in cPanel/WHM that will allow you to merge two accounts into one. Instead, you can manually copy over files/databases from one account to another. Or, if there is no content on the second account, you may consider using the following option as indicated in the post above:

    "WHM Home » Account Functions » Modify an Account"

    Then, simply add the original domain name to the account as a Parked or Addon domain name.

    Thank you.
