    ive just ordered a new server and was wondering the best way to transfer my website over, i only have 1 account on there that totals around 32gb in files and sql db (30gb files)

    will the whm transfer feature work ok because the account is so big?

    thanks mark

    Hello :)

    The transfer system may work fine, but generally it's advised to package the account manually when it's that large. I suggest backing up the account on the source server using /scripts/pkgacct or using the backup feature in cPanel if you do not have root access. You can then upload the archive to the destination server and restore it via:

    /scripts/restorepkg /path/to/archive.tar.gz
    Thank you.
