    Im spitting feathers again on this side. Im trying to copy 500 accounts from one server to another server and as per usual, it cant do it in one go. Either the script times out, or there is slight packet loss from the browser PC or one of many different reasons..... the script stalls or stops.

    This is killing me ....

    How on earth can you do a transfer without this failing all the time? Is there a way I can run the transfer command from command line, because this isnt working. I cant go 100 transfers without a fail. When the browser stalls, how do you recover from where you were?

    I'd reduce the moves to 50 accounts... But you can use pkgacct and move the accounts manually and then rsync the home and database directories... Also, have you looked at using the streaming transfer option...

    Hello :)

    The following post provides details on how to transfer the accounts through the command line if you prefer to use a screen session via SSH as opposed to the user interface in WHM:

    Using pkgacct/restorepkg to transfer all accounts

    Thank you.
