The Christian Web Hosting company we own offers free website transfer with all new hosting plans. If the need arises to FTP all the files from the old host, I have found this command to be excellent in recursively retrieving all files via FTP from the linux command line.
wget -rcl0 ftp://user:pass@hostname
The flags do the following
-r retrieve all files and folders recursively
-c Only download files and folders that are missing. Useful for restarting the process if it fails.
-l0 Descend into the furthest levels, by default wget will go down 4 levels.
Hello I am trying to use ftp to transfer the entire contents of a folder and recursively transfer any folders within it..Does anyone have any expertise on this?
