You do it in a command window (Terminal, xterm or whatever). Substitute your actual user names for olduser and newuser. Or have you tried that and it hasn't worked?

Thanks for your reply. Would that be with the vps console?

Haven't tried it yet. Don't fully understand the procedures.

I open the vps console, login with user root?
Then what do i type?

First:
cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts
<enter>
than:
./move_domain.sh domain.com olduser newuser [replace these values]
<enter>

like this?

-bash: ./move_domain.sh: no such file or dorectory

There should be an icon on your desktop to get a command session. It will probably be an icon of a CRT screen or similar. But you can use PuTTY.
Did cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts succeed? If the script is not there, I guess you're out of luck. You could do an ls *.sh to see if there's something similar. Or just simply ls

If there's a desktop icon, you get an already logged-in session.
