Copy An Account from Another Server

This function allows you to copy an account from another server without that account's password. You will need the root password of the server that the account resides on.

  1. To access the Transfers Menu, click on Transfers, on the main screen of your WebHost Manager interface.
  2. Enter the IP address or domain name and server root password in the Server to copy from and Server root password fields.
  3. Enter the username of the account that you want to copy in the Username to copy field.
  4. Click on the Give new account an IP address checkbox if you wish to give the transferred account its own dedicated IP address.
  5. Click on the required radio button to indicate what type of control panel software the remote server is using.
  6. Click on Setup.


If SSH is disabled for the root user, you need to enter the user name and password of a user who is part of the Wheel group (su) in the User with su access and User with su access password field.
