cPanel to cPanel backup & restore Q's

I want to move a shared server account's contents from one host to another. Both have cPanelX.

Last night I went to the current cPanel and did a "Full Backup" which resulted in a 1.5Gb tarball that I downloaded this morning. I was logged into the target cPanel and about to click the restore button when I got to thinking I'd not done it right, that I should have used the "Home Directory" option instead.

So now I'm generating a Home Directory backup which is saving directly to my local machine. I would imagine it should be smaller than the Full Backup and it's at 500Mb now and counting.

There's no databases involved and I can manually do the email and FTP accounts, just a basic site with Gallery and 3 add-on domains that already are established on the new server (haven't changed the DNS for the domains yet).

Does anyone know if I'm doing the right thing? I'm hoping the Home Directory will just be my public_html directory and my sites will sort of automagically appear when the restore is done.

I believe the reseller version of Cpanel ( WHM? ) is capable of moving accounts to other remote Cpanel servers with ease. Sadly I know little more than this.

Perhaps you should request that your current host makes the move for you, of course you may not want them to know you're intending on moving before you've safely backed up and etc.

You could also check the CPanel documentation.

Probably not all that helpful, but a *bump* none the less

Good luck!

Now that's just crazy talk!

The download finished at 1.3Gb. I tried the restore upload in the target cPanel and it crashed Safari twice so now I'm trying it with Mozilla. We shall see - I have nothing to lose on the target as it's a brand new account with nothing of note there.
