Transfer Files To A New Host

Mar 3, 2008

I'm in the process of switching to a new host for my websites. My old host is Servage and my new host is Dreamhost.

I'm looking for a way to directly transfer all my files from Servage to Dreamhost (i.e. don't transfer them via my PC).

Whilst Dreamhost offers a whole suite of access to their servers, Servage only offers FTP (no SFTP, no SCP, no SSH, no RSYNC). Servage also don't give any ability to create a tar.gz of my files (I tried to use a Perl script to execute a shell command to tar my files, but it didn't work )

So currently the only way I can see to get the files across to Dreamhost is to use the ftp command (via SSH on Dreamhost), but this command is severely limiting because mget can't transfer directories - it can only transfer files in a directory.

Can anyone see an easy way for me to get all files across to my new host?

Transfer Files From One Host To Another

Feb 18, 2007

I've been asking a fair few question lately here on WHT. You've all been a great help so far. I just ordered two new servers from I want to take all my video files from my previous host, and transfer them over to my new host. There's roughly 100 files which is a total of about 8GB. I have a php script which can copy the files manually, one by one, but that's the last resort as I'm not very keen on that idea.

I have root access to both servers so I can pretty much do what I want with them. What's the best way to grab the entire contants of a ftp folder and transfer it over? I need to copy the files from my old host to one of my new servers, and then copy the files between my two new dedicated servers.

Jan 10, 2007

Are there any good software that will backup current server files and restore them on a new server?

I'm looking for full backup, that would backup all the files in less time instead of going to each account's cpanel first and downloading backup than restoring it to new server.

How To Easiest Do Backup And Transfer Of Mysql Files

Jun 29, 2008

I have following problem-i have over 20 sites on server and each site has own database.Is there a way to speed up backup and transfer or other server?

Method which i use right now it's following:first i archive entire directory using command tar -pczf name.tar.gz public_html,and then repeat with each directory.But i think i could simply archive all requied directories,but that will took toomuch time,so if i drop connection during archiving it wont be archived at all then.So i think best solution will be to create some kind of batch command which can load in background,so that means command wont stop if client lost connection.

So let's say i have 2 sites and two directories located and different places.

One is at home/site1 and other at home/site2
So i think i would need to put command into batch file
tar -pczf site.tar.gz. /home/site1 and tar -pczf site2.tar.gz /home/site2

Will that work? Also second part,mysql databases,i founded if i login into phpmyadmin as root i can see all databases.I managed to export all databases,but question will import again to phpmyadmin work.I think phpmyadmin create command for each database "if there is no db sitename_mysqlbase,create it",but howmuch i know phpmyadmin have limit with importing size of mysql database.Could that be done with import/export mysql command?

How To Transfer Huge Files Without Shell Access

Feb 8, 2008

transfer a client's site files (over 220 MB) to my server. The client does not use cPanel or have SSH access.

FTP is horribly tedious. I have created the account on my server and have SSH enabled. I have a feeling I can use wget to download the files to the account's home directory, but I am not sure of the correct syntax to recursively download all the directories and the files.

How To Transfer My Domain Name To The VPS Host

Oct 20, 2008

I just recently switched from a shared hosting to a vps hosting. And I'm a bit confused on how to transfer my domain name to the VPS host. When I signed up I choose the option "Transfer my domain to here" Is there anything else I need to do? Or I just wait for it to be transfered after i supply the auth code? Sorry this is my first time using a vps type hosting.

Host That Will Transfer Existing PhpBB

May 3, 2008

Current BB:
Current host: readyBB
My technical skills: only enough to be dangerous

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

My current host is not satisfactory. Support is practically non-existant. I need to know if there is such a thing as a host that will provide transfer services as I do not have the technical ability to do it myself.

I would think the ideal situation would be to copy everything to the new host first, but as much as I've read and read about this for months, I still do not trust myself to do it.

Redoing A Website- Accessing Files

Sep 29, 2009

I am redoing a website that is currently being hosted by some shady company that is completely unreachable. I have the ftp server info and password, and I am trying to get on using FileZilla, however there must be something incorrect because it is not letting me access the site.

Is there anyway I can host this website using the same current domain, even though it is already being hosted by this other horrible company? The person I am doing the site for has been trying to contact the company for months to cancel hosting, but they are not responding.

For example, if the company was, and I have created a new site for them which I have on my own webserver, how do I access so that the website I made will now be at that domain?

Trying To Host A Website From Home PC

May 15, 2009

I am trying to host a website from my home computer. Currently I have it setup and it works and everything. I have my virus database updated, router update, firewall up and running, and I am ready for people to try hacking. But there is one thing I can do. I can't seem to get my website online. I go to and try that IP address on both the computer I am hosting the website from and a different computer downtown but I can access it. I am currently using to tell people to download COMODO EasyVPN to access my website. But they have to download it first to be able to access my website. At one time I had to load it using the IP address I go to but it took it six minutes to load and with the EasyVPN it only takes seconds. I am just wandering if my internet connection is just timing out and not letting anyone on. Is there a software I can use that works like COMODO EasyVPN but lets you type in my External/Public IP address and it go to my website. I mean my connection is slow but with the COMODO EasyVPN software it makes people connecting to my computer fast. I need a software that tunnels my connection to a clients computer.

I am using the XAMPP software to host my website!

Community Website - Which Host

Jul 9, 2008

I've had four different hosts in 1 year, and I'm noe experiencing problems again with my current host, Lunarpages. Therefore, I really want to make the right choice this time. It would be such a pleasure to see my website run without any problems for more than just 8-9 months at a time...

Anyway, let me try to describe it. It's based on the Content Management System phpFusion. It has news, downloads, forums and screenshots. The site itself is c. 2 GB large (because of forum attachments and screenshots), the download section is c. 15 GB, and the site use up about 700 GB og bandwidth each month. In the forum, there's 100.000 posts, growing day for day, of course. We have 12.000 registered members, but we only have c. 50 members online at the same time -- maximum. Throughout a week, 2.000 members log in, but as said, they are never online at the same time. The members are mostly from Europe, but we do also have members from USA and Australia.

I've had both Lunarpages and Servage as hosts, but I have experienced problems with both of them. Servage has a daily bandwidth limit which I had overlooked, and the website constantly exceeded this. Lunarpages is very, very slow when using a MySQL DB.
