    Why don't you simply backup your complete cPanel account and restore it to new location? Straight from cPanel?

    After that just edit wp-config.php if you have some special plugins or something that use path like /home/username/public_html/ and change it to new path.

    There are quite a few ways to transfer website from one place to another depends on your skills...

    You can go over: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress for more details...

    Also just thought of this, it depends on your website, you can simply export/import posts/pages if it is simple... It all depends on your website and your skills...

    Or you can use some plugins for backup that will help you with wordpress backup/restore to new location.
