[ISSUE RESOLVED] FTP over putty

  1. Hello, I needed some help. I would like to know how for example if I wanted to go to my old host and transfer all the files from there to my new machine and into a specific directory.
     
  2. Download it to your computer then upload it?
    OR, this is tedious and NOT recomemnded.
    Put the files in your webserver at like ip/newdedi/<YOUR-FILES-HERE>
    and do wget -r ip/newdedi
    If this doesnt work, just PM me and ill help you.
     
  3. Hey, I'm new to linux, so is it okay if you do it, as if I end up doing it, I will mess it up.

    Also with transferring to my computer, it would take like 5 days +

  5. I think a better solution would be rsync or scp.
