plesk to cpanel error.

We have a cpanel server and a plesk server.

Both with root access.

Over the past few months we have been transfering websites from plesk to cpanel using the cpanel transfer tool.

Everything has been going great. We have moved over 50+ sites.

Recently, in the last few weeks, we have followed the same process and we always get the following error once the migration process starts.

Starting “TRANSFER” for “Account” “Editedaccountnameonpleskserver”.
Copy Destination: /home
Remote server type: “plesk”.
Packaging the account with the command: /scripts/pkgacct-wrapper /scripts/pkgacct.mydomainoncpanel.net Editedaccountnameonpleskserver '' --split --compressed --mysql 5.5 --allow-multiple …

We have now tried various options, such as making the mysql password the same as root on the cpanel server to test.

We are really out of ideas here.

one thing to note, the site that generated the mysql error above, is a flat html site with a database.
