    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.

    thank you very much for your reply...

    so let me explane what we have and what i know :)

    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.

    thank you
