What if the source server do not have access, can we still transfer through WHM?

Like in my case, my host shut down my forum saying that i am utilizing more of his CPU resources, so now i upgrade to a VPS and doing the transfer manually.

lets asume they both have cPanel

1) Go into your shared account, make a FULL backup, wait for the email saying it is complete.
2) Go into legacy file manager, or your FTP program you use, and move it to the "public_html" or "www" directory. Change the permissions to 777
3) login to "root" SSH via puTTy.exe (google it)
type this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4) Go into ROOT WHM on your VPS server, and click "Restore full cpmove/cpbackup"
5) finally, type in the username you use to login to cPanel with
6) wait for it to say "done" (after all the other "restoring" stuff it will say)
There ya go, you transfered all your files, databases, settings, and email accounts (etc) to your VPS server

vBulletin runs on IIS seamlessly. You can also run your ASP applications as well, as PHP is separate and doesn't interfere.

phpMyAdmin is a nice tool to do lazy basic admin, but it's lousy if you're trying to dump a large database that takes more time than the php max execution time setting.

best option is to do it by hand.

1. get SSH access to your server.
2. login via SSH
3. backup your entire public_html folder (assuming you're on cPanel already)
# tar -cvf backup.tar /home/username/public_html

4. dump your database and tar it up
# mysqldump -Uusername -Ppassword database_name > somefile.sql
# tar -cvf database.tar /path/to/somefile.sql

5. move these two tar files to your public_html folder
6. login to your windows server via RDP
7. open a browser window and browse to the two files and download them to your desktop.
8. unzip the two files to your webroot
9. reimport the .sql file to your database
# mysql -Uusername -Ppassword database_name < somefile.sql

enjoy
