    I am trying to move an account from one cpanel server to another. The domain is different, but the user is the same.

    If I use the whm menu to copy an account it always says the password is bad, yet it for sure is correct.

    I did backup the account on the old server and ftp it to the new server. If I run the script and the user from the move account is already on the server and has domains and databases in it, how will the import work?

    What are you hoping to do, overwrite or merge the account?

    Either. Or create a new account with a new user. I just want all domains onto the same server.

    Can you edit the existing users account on the new server and change his name? Copy an Account will not merge user accounts or overwrite, AFAIK.
