Question Use yafc's fxp command to FTP transfer all files from old hosting to new hosting?


Hello,
I have a TON of files to transfer from my old hosting account to my new one. After some digging, it looks like installing and using yafc in termanal would be a great nearly-direct FTP solution for getting files from one place to the other using yafc's fxp command.

Examples I found here:
Quote:
fxp --target=2 foo.tar.gz -o bar.tar.gz

will transfer the remote file foo.tar.gz on the currently active remote server to the remote file bar.tar.gz on the remote server specified with the --target option (in this case the second open connection).

fxp --target=funet *.tar.gz -o foo

will transfer all remote *.tar.gz files to a directory named foo on the host specified with the --target option (in this case 'funet').

fxp -T ftp.stacken.kth.se foo -r -o bar

will transfer the remote file foo to a directory named bar on ftp.stacken.kth.se. If foo is a directory, it will be downloaded recursively.
Sounds great! I'm just really fuzzy on specifics.

While I continue to dig, does anyone have an idea on how to make this happen from start to finish? My goal is to automate this as much as possible for future.

Thanks for the assist in advance!

Why install new tool when you have scp and rsync inbuilt (usually) by default ?

Doh! Why didn't I think of that.

This might do the trick:

Quote:
scp -r user@server1:/ user@server2:/
Thanks

wait. scp and rsync are not ftp. At the moment I only have ftp access (part of the reason I'm moving to different hosting). Any thoughts on an ftp solution to download everything via command line?

If you have the shell on any one side ( your new host ) then you should be able to use "wget". If wget is not working, perhaps you can write a small script to copy via ftp.

If you follow the second approach, the following link may help you script.
