    Moving from shared to VPS

    Hi,
    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this ?

    i am busy transferring a account using fullbackup from cpanel in a shared cpanel account to my VPS

    The backup file is 99meg and transfer to VPS no problem. When i restore the account it has lost some databases and wont work. I have tried it on 2 VPS's and it does the same

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks

    Or just taking a dump of the database and moving it over manually

    i tried the backup 3 times already but it still dont want to restore properly. My first attempt to dump the database kinda worked but the text files for the dump is 9mb. Also the site is an auction site so all the different products have pictures with them that is why i prefer to do a backup

    Best solution would be to contact your shared hosting provider for your account's WHM full backup. Transfer that backup, and restore it via WHM on your new VPS. That will completely restore your account to its original state, including all your usernames, passwords, databases (including the user/pass as well), mail accounts, subdomains, ftp etc intact.

    Note: Restore via WHM, not cpanel. Don't create the account on your vps' WHM yet. Just restore that WHM backup and it will automatically and literary restore everything intact.

    The problem is that reseller account don't belong to me, which means i have to work through the owner of the reseller which wont allow that backup.

    Still cant understand why when i do a remote backup that some of the data base info is lost.

    luckily i have a older copy somewhere else which i transferred so i just need to update the latest data base

    This could be an issue with the shared host. I had a similar issue with a large database. I had to make a couple of manual dumps and then restore them myself.

    Did you try MySqlDumper? You only need FTP and the database user/pass and it will work, i have done databases around 2.4 GB with it no problems so 9 MB is nothing.
