I have a problem with copying an account from one server to another server. I am sure that I have the latest build for CPanel and WHM. I currently have build 150.
This is the error I get:

&Bailing out .. no prefix set and tarroot is /home
The remote server didn't report a correct md5sum of the archive. Please ensure you are running WHM 4.5.0+ on the remote server&

Is this a bug?
Thanks,
John.

I have the same problem, so it looks like you're no alone! :)

I wish there was some documentation or a listing of what the copy actually does. Will it move everything? For example, subdomains... and mailing list archives, etc. ????

Make sure the remote server has the latest scripts.

rsync -av rsync://rsync.cpanel.net/scripts /scripts

---

account moves will bail out if the remote server does not have the latest /scripts as the latest version now prevents you from transfering the root account and overwriting all your mysql settings (basiclly this is intentionly will not work unless it sees that the remote server has been updated.. its easy to fix if you do move the root user, but it seems that for some reason many people tried to do this.. I'm not sure why)

account copying

It works now :)

It's something you have to know, but I'm glad it works!

Thanks!

account move

Is there a way to use this option for account moves from a Cpanel3 machine to Cpanel4 machine? Can someone make this work for us? because moving sites at dialup speeds sux. wait comcast sux. but enough of that.

Why would you still be running cpanel3 ?

Does the account copier copy SSL certs across as well?

We are at VDI.

Whats wrong with VDI?
They also supply Cpanel4 licenses.
I think you should upgrade... without upgrading it will be a long way to transfer account from 3 --& 4...

Its posible to copy the accounts over easily, however you'd have to copy some cpanel4 code over to the cpanel3 server which I'm really not ok with..

Hmm... yeah... we had the same problem...
We have then the use the following way to copy over accounts:
log into the old server in ssh ( as root)
cd /home/username
tar cvf tarfile.tar *
gzip tarfile.tar

exit

Create the account on the New Server. Then login to the new server in ssh (as root)
cd /home/username
ftp accouttotransfer.com (enter UserID and PW for this acc. on the old server)
get tarfile.tar.gz

quit

gzip -d tarfile.tar.gz
tar xvf tarfile.tar

rm tarfile.tar
y


that will copy all things (exxept MySQL DB)
