I know someone who has a 300mb website and wants to transfer it to a new host. Problem is, the new host doesn't offer shell access (do any hosts anymore?), and this guy only has dial-up access. Obviously, it would be quite difficult for him to transfer the site via FTP/dial-up.
Is there any other way to do it? Aside from burning the files onto CDs and having someone with high-speed access upload it for him?
Thanks, Matt. That thought had crossed my mind, too. I just wanted to see if there was a way he could do it himself, first. I will suggest it, though. I'd think any host that wants his business woud be willing to do it.
SSH is my perfered method of uploads no matter what cause you can use applications on the server. If your using windows NT try going to SSH.com or something (they have a free version that you can download). Also the FTP and WGET commands are something to checkout. Plus ( theres more ??) go to SF.NET and you may find other SSH clients there.
