    Hi,

    I've tried using the account transfer feature in WHM to move a very large account (2GB). The new server that I'm copying data to (FreeBSD 5.1) locks up during the transfer, so I manually moved all of the split files over to the new box. Inside of /home I have:

    cpmove-username-tar.gz.part1
    cpmove-username-tar.gz.part2
    cpmove-username-tar.gz.part3

    ..etc

    Anyway, if I run "/scripts/restorepkg username" I get:

    Searching /home....
    No Restorable archives found!

    I know that /scripts/restorepkg was used to manually restore a cpmove file in the past - Is there a new way (or cpanel script) of doing this?

    After further research on this forum I found that you can do the following:

    cat cpmove-username.tar.gz.part1 cpmove-username.tar.gz.part2 cpmove-username.tar.gz.part3 > cpmove-username.tar.gz

    then run /scripts/restorepkg

    Make sure the cpmove-username.tar.gz is in /home before running restorepkg
