    Hello,

    I have a server with 3000 accounts need to move to another server. Most of accounts only have a few files(less than 50MB). Is there a way to complete this faster? I estimate the time with using WHM, it took about 66 hours. Thanks.

    Last time I tired this was on cPanel 10 with 5500 clients, the fastest way I found to do it was make sure you have enough local storage and write a script that will loop over each user in /var/cpanel/users and do a /scripts/pkgacct for them. Once this completes create a tarball of all the accounts then scp/ftp the file to the new server and restore the accounts that way

    or you can backup all of them skipping they home directory and then rsync the complete /home directory.
