    Server2Server FTP whole directories and sub-directories

    I want to copy whole directories about 20gb to another server across the world.

    If I type "mput *" it will say "not a plain file" for directories.

    How do you move an entire site, I don't want to achive and move because it is big.

    Thanks

    Preferably, use rsync instead of ftp. If you're running ssh on the standard port it's as simple as:
    Code:
    rsync -avz path/to/source_dir [email protected]:path/to/destination_dir
    If you must use ftp, ncftp will give you the "put -R source_dir" command.
