my account is suspended and i have to leave dreamhost.
I don’t have SSH and only have FTP.
i have 250GB of data to move.
I have an image hosting site the upload folder is full of files, i can’t say how much but the directory listing is just impossible to do…
from the destination server i’m using the LFTP command like this:
lftp ftp://user:email@example.com –e “set net:timeout 0” -e “mirror --parallel=8 -n -e /mysite.net /var/www/mysite.net ; quit”
I started this command before going to bed yesterday night, today i Wake up and i see that no files were copied, and the command is stuck at reading the file list…it is not crashed i did a CTRL+C and it stopped the process.
i tried the same command with another subdmain also huge, but less. and i can see the “reading file information” progression very slow, %5 in 1hour…
Would it be faster if the LFTP command is started from the local server instead of the destination server ?
If yes a DH admin could do it for me if i give him the exact command with user/pass ?
Else what other possibility i have ? i was told to leave DH before April 1st.
Thank for your help.
