In this tutorial we will demonstrate an easy way to transfer multiple accounts from Plesk to cPanel using WHM’s Transfer Tool.

Pre-requisites

  • SSH Access to the Plesk server (source)
  • WHM Access to the cPanel server (destination)
  • Root-level privileges with su or sudo on Plesk server

Step-by-Step guide to Transfer Multiple Accounts from Plesk to cPanel

Execute the following command as the root user in cPanel:

/usr/local/psa/bin/domain --update example.com -hst_type phys -login "example_user" -hosting true -ip 127.0.0.1 -passwd "password"
  • Replace example.com with the domain name being updated
  • Replace example_user with the username you want to apply for thew new account
  • Replace 127.0.0.1 with the IP address you want to assign for the account
  • Replace password with a password to apply for the new account

Step 2 – Access WHM Transfer Tool
