    I have tried the WHM move account for sites on an Ensim server but it always fails, I think because they are so large, so I will need to move them manually, however, I've never done that, anyone who says, is this a good way to do it?:

    1. on old server go to /home/

    2. tar up the entire contents of above dir

    3. wget file to new server in /home/user_name/public_html

    4. untar the tar file from old server

    5. chown -R user:nuser /home/user/public_html/*

    If it has no database just a lot of files, that should work right? (Ihope)

    Seems like you're missing a shiteload...

    Do this... set it to backup to the harddisk, select only thr account you need, and kick off backup.

    (You can find the command to backup in crontab -l whilst logged in as root.)
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
