I need to have a website moved from one dedicated server to another - the site is over 40 GB in size, and it's an urgent matter (2-3 days maximum). Full CPanel backup creation and moves have been attempted in every way and failed (backup files reaching only 11 GB and when transferred being 0 bytes), WHM account copying has been attempted and failed. There are multiple databases and thousands of saved emails that are of utmost importance. There are thousands of files in the website. Media files (MP3's, Videos, etc) and static pages.
The solutions I can think of are either try and move the site using SSH - which due to my computer settings I can't use - OR either if you have a very fast connection (both up and down) download a backup of the media files so the site is under 5 GB and then proceed with a CPanel dump.
Please keep in mind that if you can't work with SSH and the download/upload way must be taken - the download of 40 GB should take less than 2 days with your connection. Something like 10 mbps up and down should be enough for this not to be ridiculously difficult.
Low budget for this, the upside is that you will get a great review here in GAF and if you have a fast connection or knowledge on the subject it's nearly no work other than waiting... and there are potential future projects with server maintenance and the like.
Ability to keep in touch via IM is a major plus but not esential - thank you.
