How-to transfer all files and database to other host

How does transfer all files and database to other host from cPanel? If you have a VPS or dedicated server it is very simply.

At first, login on your new server and create a user. For example, username transfer with same password transfer. Please, do not worries you may give stronger password or just delete this user after transfer will be finished.

To add the user, give her a standard home directory in the /home folder and specify the shell she accesses by default do this:

sudo useradd transfer -m -s /bin/bash
sudo passwd transfer

First step is ready.

Login to cPanel on old server, go to Backup, and press button “Download or Generate a Full website Backup”.
