    Moving domains between WHM accounts

    Hello
    I have WHM account called "account1" and I have there several pages called: "page1.info" "page2.org" & "page3.com". What I want to do is to move "page3.com" to new WHM account called "account2". I'm just a lame, so if you could explain it step by step I would be thankful...
    Regards

    You could just download the file from the account and then re-upload it onto account2.

    Or, if you know bash, you can copy the file over from account1 to account2 and then change the owner of the file to match account2's username.

    thx, but when I try to create account2 it says: "Account Creation Status: failed, (Sorry, DNS entry for page3.com[domain name - this is added by me] already exists, please delete it first)".
    Does it mean that I first have to delete this page3.com from account1 and then try again?

    If you set up the account with a temp name, such as 23nmqlqk23n.com then move all the files over, you can then remove the domain name from account1 and change the domain on account2 from 23nmqlqk23n.com to page3.com.

    EDIT

    Alternatively, you could take a backup of page3.com and then remove it from account1, then upload it to account2.

    There are many different ways around the problem really.

    removing the domains first would help. I don't think removing the addon domain will delete the content but you should keep a backup just in case as Nathan suggested above.

    You can either manually upload the files or use ssh/sftp and just move the files (assuming you have root access)
