I am currently trying to figure out the best way to transfer my old websites, their databases and various other web files from my old ISP to Dreamhost.
I have tried doing an FXP, (transferring files between ISP’s using an FTP client such as wsFTP) but that does not seem to work. So now I am back to square 1.
I can make a complete download from my old ISP and then upload it to Dreamhost, but since I a) have about 20+ gigs of stuff and b) I am living in China and my old ISP and Dreamhost are both in the US, this would take forever since top download speeds for me hover around 5k a second if I am lucky.
So any suggestions on how to transfer all of my files would be greatly appreciated.
