    You can migrate your sites using the inbuild feature of cPanel using copy an account from another server.

    "Copy an account from another server" option will copy only single account.

    You can use the copy multiple accounts/package from another server to copy multiple accounts in one time.

    You can use the multiple account transfer feature in WHM ...

    However if your old server and new server are both Cpanel based,
    you could just skip all the migration tools and simply do a direct rsync
    transfer and get all your sites up and running on the new server
    withing a few minutes of transferring all the files.

    I do this kind of transfer all the time and it pretty simple to setup actually. ;)

    Also You can make CPanel/WHM make a full backup of every account as set in Main >> Backup >> Configure Backup (/scripts/cpbackup).Then copy the files over to /home of the new server and import them in WHM again.
    Works fine.

    I actually have a much better way to do a full server transfer that I
    could show you but as far as transferring the files you asked:
    Code:
    # rsync -avz /home/cpmove-*.gz [b][i](new server ip)[/i][/b]:/home
    
    (If your files are regular backup files instead of cprestore files, just update the command)

    Unless you configured an authenticated link between the two servers,
    you will be asked for the password to your new server. Just type in that
    password and you should be good to go! ;)
