how can Hosting account migration manually on cPanel server??

There is a scenario where you need to transfer a hosting account which is present on your server to another (new) server, to accomplish this follow the below steps:
Present server:
cd /home
/scripts/pkgacct username
This command will create a file cpmove-username.tar.gz in the /home directory, now this is to be copied to the new server.
scp cpmove-username.tar.gz root@server-IP:/home
This will prompt for the password, you can enter the new server password.
New server:
/scripts/restorepkg username
This will restore the hosting account which includes email, database and the contents  source
