Do you have SSH, if so you can transfer the file quickly using wget

Transfer Backup to remote ftp server with wget? It is impossible.


You can also create backup with CPanel and upload it to the remote ftp server with simple "ftp".

I can not really say if it is really like that and Cpanel Backup does not work for over 250MB. Theoritically I do not see the point of it, otherwise it is manually limited.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

That can't be right (250MB limit) as I use CPanel to backup to my FTP server and am doing over 250MB.

The only real limit I've seen is if you are dealing with a move over 2 GIGS. I've moved accounts using CPanel that have been over 1 gig in size without any issues.

If your host tells you the limit is 250 MB, then that means your host's FTP space will only accept a file that big. They might have placed a limit on the maximum size of an individual file, or they might be limiting the amount of disk space the FTP account username/password you are using has.

Do you have ssh access? you could do the following:

login to ssh
cd /home/
tar -cvf yourusername/backup.tar /yourusername/
cd yourusername
bzip2 -9 backup.tar
(enter new username)
(enter new password)
put backup.tar.bz2
(wait around for a while while it transfers)

wait until you see "226 File successfully transferred"
ssh -l newusername
bzip2 -d backup.tar.bz2
tar -xf backup.tar
cd oldusername
mv * ..
(complete steps to backup your databases using mysqldump)

You could probably even hire to move all your data to the new host.
