  • 17 meg backup file too large to download?

    Is there a typical file size that becomes too large to download using ftp? My daily mysql backups are now around 17 megs in size, and for the life of me, using ftp stalls at exactly 6% every time. Just a few days ago when the size was smaller, I had no problem.

    Anyone else having such problems? Is there something more consistent than ftp to download large files (which I doubt 17 megs can be considered as)?

    they shouldn't be any such limit

    have you tried using flashget and placing the download in web browser accessible directory and using flashget or download manager to grab the file ? that way you can resume the download if for any reason you get disconnected etc

      I've thought about that (placing the backups in a www accesible folder and using the browser to download), though I hate to have to rework the cron job. Just thought I'd confirm that it's my web host/connection dropping the ball here.

        i'm not 100% sure if this is even possible, but MySQL may have disconnected your backup after the first 6% was done... I dont see how thats possible under linux or windows (if the file shows up as being 17MB) but hey, who knows
