Remote FTP to Remote FTP Transfer

Post by hounsell »

I'm currently in the process of transferring my files from my old server to my new one. The only problem is it takes far to long to reupload the files, as my internet connection has quite a poor upload speed, only about 20kb/s. I was wondering if a could do a direct transfer between the two servers, try to get one to download from the other for example. Is this even possible? If so, what software will i need?

Yes, this is exactly what i want. I tried to do this in SmartFTP, but it just crashed each time i tried, and i cant see a way to do this in filezilla

Your sig's perfectly fine, 600x150 is the limit, and you're below that.

Your destination web host needs to have it enabled (so it can get them off the other server, the other server will give them to any client/server with the right credentials).

If you have SSH access, it's usually easiest to use SFTP. Or, normal FTP will do as well.

That is, have the destination server as the FTP client, and the source server as the FTP server

If you have ssh access with wget installed, you can do "wget -rm --follow-ftp ftp://site.address" and it'll mirror the site and follow ftp links. Be in the ftp root dir and you can have it mirror the ftp right away
