    I am moving my web site to a new server. I have a password protection enable on my directory and files and it consist of over 500 members. Where I am now trying to figure out how to move the password protection database to the new server. So I don't have to readd the members there again,

    The new server is also the same running CPanel.
    Any help with be highly appreciated...

    Hi Superman,

    You should provide the following information to the admin of the new server:

    1. Username or Login for the account
    2. Password for cPanel
    3. The site's IP
    4. And the full domain name of the account

    With this information, new server admin can contact the old server and attempt to package the information and transfer it to our server using WHM or shell access. If successfull , everything including mail and database would be intact. The disadvantage with this is that it is not entirely perfect , if the two servers don't connect or the old server does not work properly the transfer cannot happen.

    In this case what you can do for transfer is the next following things:

    1. Go to the cPanel (control panel) for the site
    2. Generate a full backup of the site
    3. Download to your home/work computer
    4. Create the new account on our servers
    5. Login to the control panel for the account on the new server
    6. Go to Restore backup

    This will restore the account just like the automatic transfer however it will take a couple extra steps.

    Hope this help you to proceed to your goal .
