    You have to get manually backup and restore on your reseller acc when you not have ssh acess.

    A lot of hosts would do it for their resellers.

    If your using cPanel/WHM, its prity straight forward to migrate from one host to another using the Transfers Utility, via direct account login or SSH; but does assume both yourself and your clients previous host are using similar versions of cPanel release (You can also copy single or multiple accounts and it only takes a few clicks).

    As you are reseller so you will have to do it manually by using "Backup" in cPanel & download it in your personal PC & restore it via same option using your personal PC. Otherwise almost all hosts are willing to do it for their resellers as it is not any issue to worry about for them, they just upload backup via SSH directly via wget command in /home/ directory & restore it via root WHM.

    I forgot to add, this is from a VPS/Dedicated server point of view. Your host should be able to do it for you. If not, you need to manually backup and restore each account individually.

    The process is not complicated;

    1. Search google
    2. Search WHT
    3. Ask your provider

    Researching will answer this question, BUT one important thing you may or may not encounter...disabled backups.

    A few hosts have disabled the backup options within cpanel and ssh by either customizing it, or just disabling it from customers. At that point you will have to do everything manually.

    Since you are a reseller, you have two options.

    Ask your host to do the transfer for you,

    Or

    Transfer backup yourself to your hosting space and ask your provider to restore them

    For transferring backup yourself you don't have to download and upload, that can be cumbersome and time consuming.

    First create a FTP account on your main domain like [email protected] (or on a domain that is hosted on the same server where you want it restored).

    Do not chose /home/user/public_html/backup as the FTP path, better make it /home/user/backup for security reasons (user/folder name "backup" can be anything of your liking).

    Now on your new client's existing cPanel, do a full backup as follows:
    Files -> Backup -> Download or Generate a Full Backup
    Backup Destination: Remote FTP Server
    Email Address: [email protected] (you will get notified when backup process is completed)
    Fill up the FTP account details.
    Press button "Generate Backup"

    Once you have received the backup notification email. Tell your host to restore that account, of which backup file is at /home/user/backup

    /home/user/backup : user = your cPanel username.

    It's easy to offer this and to make it happen. Most providers even resellers offer it due to the fact it's a very easy process to make it happen. Cpanel has a wonderful feature that will back up the whole account you can then download the back up and restore it in the new account under the feature back up utility or manager I believe.

    If your on a reseller depending who your upstream provider is if they call it managed reseller or what ever then most times they would do the transfer for your new or existing client if they are doing cpanel to coalrn...

    First option would taking backups from cpanel using remote ftp. So that backups would be generated and copied to your remote server. There you can restore it from your whm.

    Second option would be contacting your host to take the backup of all accounts and restore it to destination server.

    Before offering that, you should read up on the security concerns regarding that practice. The backup/restore function in WHM runs as root. A malicious user could place a hack into the backup, and you would compromise your own server by doing the restore. Here is a link about the topic:

    Do not ask your provider to do it for you. If you want the burden of running a web host you should know how to do the very basics of cPanel. When a client asks a basic cPanel question about backups, stats, email, ssh, path to sendmail, ect, you don't want to have to reply with, "lemme ask my web host provider."

    Instead of passing it on to your host and learning nothing, research how to do it. Starting a thread was a good start, however searching Google would yield much quicker and detailed results.

    Some reseller hosting hosts do not allow this feature, or from what i can rememeber in the past anyway, unless you can request the function to be there.
