I have a account that is about 98 GB and I cant back it up because i only have 40GB of space left. I am trying to move it to my other cPanel server, but I cant seem to figure out how to copy the account without including all data. My plan was to rsync the data after the account had been copied to the new server.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hello,

You can also do this from command line with --skiphomedir option in pkgacct script provided by cPanel. In both cases you will need root level access.

Hello,

I am happy to see the skiphomedir flag was helpful. Thank you for updating us with the outcome.
