    Hi,

    I am looking for a super simple :) migration of my accounts from one server to another. Since not all accounts should be migrated at once i need an account by account migration sollution.

    I have same cPanel and same OS (centOS 6.5) on both servers and i don't understand the backup sollution in the cPanel. Do i need to create an account first or can i just make a backup file upload it to new server and import it? Will the backup create an account for me?

    Thank you for short description or link where step by step is given.

    Regards
    Caitanya

    OK i've found the solution:

    I used this script on the old server:
    /scripts/pkgacct usertobackup

    then i upload it to /home on the new server and use the cPanel restore full backup function.

    Regards
    Caitanya

    Is there a new location for the above docs as the link gives a 404

    Am also looking to move sites from one server to another, but not all at the same time.

    Thanks.

    I have updated the link in my last post. You do not have to copy accounts all at the same time. You can choose to only migrate a few accounts at a time if you prefer.

    Thank you.
