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
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!
