    I have a 5 gig site that takes a very long time to transfer to the new server. It seems to be fine packing it up, splitting it, transferring it, unpacking it, and setting up the account. But I have been waiting for over 3 hours for the popup to come up actually stating that it's done. The last line of the log is "Account created ok", but no popup as with most copies I have done.

    the only thing I see when I look in the home www dir is /cgi-bin/

    Any advice is greatly appreciated if anyone has done a large transfer that seems to take an eternity...

    Thanks so so much!

    For a large account like this, I'd suggest packaging it on old server, moving it manually and then restoring from localhost. You might find that works better.

    it actually worked! Just took almost 8 hours, my advice to someone who is doing this is just BE PATIENT!

    cheers, cpanel ftw!
