    How to do Server to Server site transfer

    Hello All!
    I want to offer my customer Free Site Transfer when shifting from there existing host. I searched a lot but couldn't find any solution for the same except the methid of creating a backup and uploading the same on new host.

    Is there any php Script that handles the same for transfering the file directly from one server to another.

    Regards,
    Ritesh Jain

    Are you using any control panel? Like for cPanel servers its built in using WHM if you have root access. Must be same with DA, Plesk or similar control panels. But you must be having same control panel on both the old and new server to be easy and error free, cPanel can import accounts from few other control panels too.

    So it depends on what control panel you are using, from what control panel your client is coming, and also what level of access you have on your server.

    In your WHM use

    Main >> Transfers >> Copy an account from another server with account password

    Also see all the option at Main >> Transfers

    I would highly recommend you to do it manually. That feature in cPanel is a risk i have done it couple of times and lost files and some where accounts.
