Hello :)

The following thread details where to obtain the transfer scripts from:

Manually Migrate From Remote Server

However, do note that cPanel accounts are not stored in a central database. There are several locations where cPanel user information is stored. This includes, but is not limited to:

# /var/cpanel/users
# /var/cpanel/userdata

It may be easier to utilize our API to create an account or subdomain, as opposed to attempting to manually update every file that stores cPanel account data. Information on our API can be found at:

cPanel - Software Development Kit

Thank you.
