    I'm switching hosting companies, and have a few sites to move with mysql databases.

    What's the least path of resistance when doing this.

    As long as the username is the same on both accounts you can use the cpanel backup and restore feature. If it's not you can ask your new host to change the username.

    Your account username. The one you use to login to your control panel.

    I also have WHM on the Target side. Will that make a difference?
