    Hey guys,

    I started to create an automated account creation script.
    Someone request a hosting account on my company site, fill in their details, submit to PayPal and purchase, then on successful return the script creates the account...all good and well.

    I then added in the option of a server transfer...if someone already has a site on a cPanel based server they can supply the info for it and that is where I'm stuck. Is it possible for me to remotely log into their cPanel account and initiate a full backup? The plan is then to transfer the file to the new server and unpack it.

    Possible? Not on your nelly mate? Yes, but using non-standard means?

    Thanks for any help.
