    whm transfer database problem

    I am trying to transfer accounts between servers by using whm transfer (with root password) and all the accounts that had databases are missing tables.

    So for some reason the transfer does not transfer databases fully, it does not matter with the size of them not all tables are getting transferred over.

    Is there any solution for this?

    By any chance are your two servers running different MySQL versions? e.g. Old Server MySQL 4x and New Server MySQL 5x?

    It "should" be OK that way round, however if the versions are the oposite way round that could cause some problems since the structure is slightly different in MySQL 5 compared to v4.

    Nope. Both servers are running mysql 4.

    You have to repair/optimize the database on the old server and re-do it.

    Any error if you try to export database first? Just for testing

    The exporting is the error.

    The database won't back up because there is a corrupt table in it. But it can never hurt to try backing it up through phpmyadmin first. BTW, there might be more on the server not being backed up. But cpanel was supposed to have fixed that a year ago by adding a line in the backup script to repair databases before backing them up.

    Take a separate database backup before transfer and then try to transfer accounts only after removing those database which had an error.
