    Site Transfer

    Hi guyz,

    This seems to happen to me often. WHen i try to move a site from one server to another, using WHM, it takes its time to move etc.. , but after a succefful transfer i could not see the files in the folders, besides no databses have been copied.

    What could be the problem.

    cPanels transfer option isn't alyways perfect, which is it that didn't get moved the files or the databases? not sure from your post.

    You might have to consider moving it manually.

    A backup, file transfer, restore may be useful also.

    Assuming you want to remove a directory and all of its contents and sub directories, you would just issue this command

    rm -rf directory_name

    Make sure that you don't need it, because once deleted, it's gone forever.

    That will work for all 100%. Use the full restore backup link in the WHM.
