Hello,
i have a cpanel with online a large website inside.
It is almost 32GB with 1GB SQL.
I tried to compress the home folder, but it stopped at 3GBytes.
How can i move this website to another cPanel ?

Have you tried the transfer tool instead of trying to manually move this? This should take care of streaming the files within the webspace over to the new server.

Alternatively, using the cPanel backup function to generate a backup of the account and then importing this into the new server may also be easier.

Hello,

Do you have root access to both the source and destination servers? If so, first check to see how much disk space is available on the source server using a command such as "df -h".

Thank you.
