    Hi all

    is there any solution to copy files and folders from a cPanel account to another cPanel account?
    At the moment, I am downloading and uploading.

    Hello @BluePlanet,

    Do you have root access to the server? If so, you may find that SSH is an easier way to move files from one location to another:

    SSH Access - Version 74 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    We also provide a "Getting Started With Linux Commands" document if you are new to SSH:

    Getting Started with Linux Commands - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    If you don't have root access to the server, then using FTP to download the files and upload them to the new account is likely the best approach because you won't be able to move files from one account to another using the command line. The other option to consider is to setup a Git repo and then clone the repo from one account to another:

    Thank you.
