We have a server (let's call it alpha) running cPanel S7965. I want to upgrade it to S14304. How can I do that? If I just run /scripts/upcp it would upgrade to S19434.

I know that it is an old stable version, but it matches the version of other server (let's call it beta) -- is is running S14304. I want to transfer all accounts from beta to alpha and do some hardware maintenance on beta, reinstall everything from scratch on beta. Then transfer from alpha to beta and reinstall alpha. I know it is a pain, but the previous admin didn't care to upgrade cPanel. If I upgrade now both servers to the latest STABLE, I won't be able to use MySQL 4.0 and many client's scripts are tied to it. Those parts will be rewritten, so the upgrade to MySQL 5.* is not a problem given the time to fix the scripts. But the server beta needs hardware maintenance right now and I need to transfer accounts from beta to alpha ASAP.

I can't transfer some accounts from beta to alpha now, because cPanel gives transfer errors on some accounts (and I don't think that support will solve them, it is much easier to upgrade alpha to match beta's version, if such upgrade is possible).

It is not possible to install any build of cPanel/WHM other than those listed on http://layer2.cpanel.net

An upgrade in cPanel/WHM does not automatically upgrade MySQL at this time. While unrecommended, MySQL 4.0 is still supported.
