    Im trying to figure out how i might be able to copy sites from 1 server to whm, the server i want to copy from i only have ftp access as on that host there is no control panel of any kind, only ftp and phpmyadmin to manage the databases, no ssh on that server, but i do have ssh on the server i want to transfer the data over to.

    any suggestions, other than ftp which would take 10-12 hours as there is about 5000mb of data to move over

    If the only access method available is that of FTP then only FTP could be used to download the web site contents in preparation to upload it to a new account on the destination server.

    Via SSH, on the destination server, it is possible to use FTP to directly connect to the old server and download content directly to the new server; this should safe significant time in transferring web site files and content.
