    Hi is there a way to move cpanel account to a new server without root access ?

    I know i can move them one by one but it will take me ages, just wanted to know if there was any other way please?

    Hello :)

    You will need at least root access to the destination server in order to utilize the WHM transfer tools. If you have root access to the destination server, but not the source server, you can use:

    "WHM Home » Transfers » Copy an Account From Another Server With an Account Password"

    Thank you.

    This option is documented at:

    Copy an account from another server with account password

    You can only transfer one account at a time using this option. Resellers do not have access to the transfer tools in Web Host Manager. You can copy over an account and make it a reseller via the "Reseller Center" in WHM.

    Thank you.

    Ok look like it will take me weeks i have over 8000 accounts to move :(

    When i move them one by one if they have a dedicated I.P will the new server automatically give them a new one so there ssl will still work ? also will i have to reinstall the ssl

    You can select the "Dedicated IP" check box when using "Copy an account from another server with account password" to ensure the account is assigned a dedicated IP address. SSL certificates will be copied over and installed as long as you select the "Dedicated IP" check box.

    Thank you.
