FTP backup

Hey i was wonder how to do a backup of an ftp. Is there and easy way to do it. If so how do i do it because i really wanna do i backup on one of my accounts

Here’s loads of info on backups:

For FTP, the program I use (Transmit for the Mac) can do a recursive copy, and even a Sync. I can have it sync my local directory so it looks like my website directory, but I use the Automatic Backup as described in the above link.
