Can I pull data from my old server to dreamhost?


#1

Im wondering if it’s possible somehow to pull the existing copy of my site (that is on my own office server) directly over to the dreamhost server that I’ve been assigned to?

It would cut out the middle man so to speak. That way I don’t have to download it all to my design computer and then reupload it to the dreamhost server.

Any clues on how to go about doing this if it’s even possible?

Thanks,

You can use shell tools on Dreamhost: rsync, wget, ftp, etc. - depending upon what tools are available on your office server.
