  • Moving /forums/ from server to server

    Hi!

    I am upgrading my server and would like to transfer my /forum/ and all subdirectories directly to the new server. Is it possible to move a directory structure through a SSH with something such as the sftp command? I've tried, but I get: "Couldn't read from /forums/. Is a directory". Specifically for the attachments directory where there are thousands of directories and files.

    I'm running Redhat Enterprise 3 if it makes a difference.

    Thanks

    You might be able to use rsync, however I would not be the person to talk to about that, erwin or eva would be better.

    Dont forget you need to move the database, and that is the most important thing to be moved.

      Yea, I am looking at Rsync now, it does look hopeful. I have already gotten the databases moved and restored, I just don't want to have to download and upload over 1gb of attachments =(
