How Do I Move A Server With The Transfer Tool?
If you want to move everything to a new server, you’ll want to perform the following steps using the transfer tool.
Step 1: Log into WHM for the new server you’re moving to (details to log into your WHM are provided in a welcome email upon purchase)
Step 2: Select the Transfer Tool under the Transfers section
Step 3: Enter the remote server address (hostname/IP address)
Step 4: Enter the Remote SSH Port
Step 5: Enter the Authentication information (root credentials)
Step 6: Click Fetch Account List
Step 7: Select all the accounts on the old server
Step 8: Choose Express Transfer if you want to copy the DNS info so it updates faster
Step 9: Login to WHM and make sure it shows the new server (If not, just choose it from the dropdown and select it, then save)
