    I want to move my website in to another hosting service which also provide Cpanel.

    I have done the below steps:
    1. Compressed and downloaded the all files present under file manager of 1st cpanel.
    2. uploaded the file and unzipped the folder in the 2nd cpanel file manager.
    3. Added add-on domains in the 2nd cpanel.
    4. Changed name servers.

    But i am getting database error for all domains(already hosted domain and moved domains).
    Can you please tell, where have i done the mistake? and how to recover it?

    Hello :)

    Have you also downloaded and imported your databases and database users? If not, you can use the "Backup Wizard" option in cPanel to do this:

    Backup Wizard - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Or, you can download and import the databases via phpMyAdmin, and then setup the database users and add them to the databases via the "MySQL Databases" option in cPanel:

    MySQL Databases - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    thanks for reply, I haven't taken backup through any of the above steps and i cancelled my service so i currently don't have the access to Cpanel :(

    Is there any other alternative or i have to pay around 25-30$ to recover my site database.

    Cpanel file manager does not contain all post and contents?

    You will not be able to access File Manager if you no longer have access to cPanel. Most applications such as WordPress store data in the MySQL database, so you won't be able to transfer the website without access to the database or access to some method of backing up the database.

    Thank you.
