hey y'all, i've moved servers (joomla site).
only problem is that I'm on limited bandwidth internet, and i still have some really large files on the old server. can i transfer them to the new server without re-uploading them?
You can ask your hosting provider to transfer the files for you ? There are plenty of hosting providers helping you out with moving your site for you; or can assist in moving these larger files. It is often much faster to transfer from server to server as well.
If not you can probably write a small shell script ftp-ing into your old account and move the needed files for you; although you will need some more knowledge of linux to do so
