Moving Server

Discussion in 'Server & Community Management' started by Josh A, Mar 25, 2013.

  1. Hi,

    I've recently got new server hardware for my server however it requires that I transfer my existing server to the new one. I'm really struggling to transfer a 20gb world via ftp because my internet is so slow. Does anyone have any suggestions?
    At this rate it's going to take longer than a week to transfer.

    Regards,
    Josh

    Do you have SSH access on the new server?
    If not I don't think you can unless you asks your host to do it for you.
     
  3. No I don't have SSH access however I could ask the host to run the SSH commands for me. What sort of thing do I need to tell them to do?

    You would need to give them your FTP info on your old host, and they will be able to do it.
    Depends if they are willing to...
     
  5. The host is a friend of mine but he's a bit of a novice and doesn't exactly know what to do. What do I need to tell him to do?
