    Lightbulb FTP from server to server to move accounts

    Hopefully a simple question from a dummy...

    I'm trying to copy a fairly large website to a new host. I want to ftp from one server to the other and copy the entire site(nearly 400mb). Using the mget or mput command, is there a way to include all the subdirectories(dozens) without going into each one individually?

    Looking for the best way to do this?

    Thanks in advance...

    You could FXP possibly. That's the way I'd do it.

    I might also tar and gzip the files, and ftp them over to the new server.

    I think the best way would be to talk to your host, and ask if you can gzip it up and send it to them, then if you dont have shell access on the server, ask them to unzip it for you. It can save all permissions and what not.
