The WHM transfer option is the safest way to copy the files over.

Beyond that, rsync is also a good option, but is not supported by cpanel and using it incorrectly can damage your system.

i have vps with whm and i want to get new one

in my old one i have 85 giga files so with WHM can transfer it?? without lose any data or any error?

if yes can do it....what i have to do?

1) Home »Transfers »Copy an Account From Another Server ??
there is what i need?

2) in Authentication session what i have to fill??
Login : root or user?

3) when i start transfer this will run in backround?? can i close my browser or i have wait to finish??

sorry for my many questions but i never try to move my site alone so i scare to not lose any of my files.

Your options are linked to in that thread. You might want to spent some time and read thru that as it's your best way to go, pretty much.

If you feel you might be in over your head, you might like to know that you can hire someone to help you from this list of cpmpanies that offer System Administration services:
