    Transferring Files

    Hi,

    A friend of mine has taken a new reseller package. He is already hosting with someone who doesn't provide ssh/telnet. But the new server provides ssh.

    I want to know, how to transfer files of his clients, from his current server to the new server directly, without downloading them to the desktop.

    The new server provides WHM and CPanel5 while the existing server has its own control panel.

    Kindly write step-by-step procedures.

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards

    You can use wget to recursively download all the files. Search the manual page ("man wget") to see the options.

    Basically, you can use wget to recursively download all the files onto your new server, then do some tweakings (file permissions, moving the directory to the right level, etc...).

    Keep in mind that this only downloads the files; it does not migrate databases or mail over.
