    I have about 4 hours of transfer time from one server to the other. Many of the sites have shopping carts, registrations, etc. Will shutting down httpd service still allow the Transfer Tool to successfully work? How is everyone else addressing this?

    Hello :)

    Yes, the transfer can still proceed when Apache is down on the source server. Some users prefer to redirect the websites to a maintenance page as the transfer occurs to prevent users from updating their website data on the source machine. This document offers some additional tips:

    Thank you.
