Manually migrating from cpanel to Plesk

    Well... my day just seemed to take a turn for the worse.. :)

    We currently host our website with a reseller, who is using cPanel 10.x.x. We have set up a web server locally, as we want to do the hosting ourselves (security reasons, mostly).

    I contacted the reseller, as I needed to have shell access to be able to run migration manager. I was told by them that they have disabled all shell access for all accounts.

    Now I have to do everything the old fashioned way.

    Is there documentation anywhere about manually moving files from one server to another? Or is it just a simple matter of ftp'ing in and copying everything over (and keeping directory structure the same)?

    You'd need to just FTP in really. Perhaps your existing provider would accept a small fee and run migration manager for you with their own shell account?
