  • best ftp method for attachments

    OK I am moving from server 1 to server 2. I have everything moved except the attachment folder. It is huge, about 60gigs.

    What is the best way to do this? I have wsftp pro, but it seems like downloading all that to my local machine and the uploading it back to the new server would be a waste. Doesn't seem efficient.

    I know I can ftp from one server to another, but i'm not sure how to move an entire folder containing sub folders.

    What is the best way?

    If you have access to SSH you could login via ftp and do a server to server transfer or maybe use rsync.

      duhh it just dawned on me. I just just zip it up and then ftp it.

        I do not think you will be able to zip 6gb of attachments. but good luck with your move,.
