Moving to a new host I need to copy big files and my upload speed is slow to do that from my PC. How can I copy from old ftp server (PHP) to new one directly ?

  • what sort of access do you have on the old and new hosts? Would compressing first be an option? – Journeyman Geek Nov 14 '18 at 16:59
  • the old host is very slow and I try compressing it get canceled from cp file manager this is why I am moving – William Nov 14 '18 at 17:02
  • Edited to remove asking for software (which is off topic). – DavidPostill Nov 14 '18 at 17:44

If the two FTP servers support the File eXchange Protocol, you may do this using an FTP client that supports it.

An example is FTP Rush, a free program for Windows that is available as a portable version and setup version.

For a review, see the article Transfer files directly between servers with FTP Rush.

enter image description here

If one of the servers does not support this protocol, you could possibly use a cloud service such as MultCloud, where the free account lets you copy up to 50 GB of data.

  • While true, FXP is actually very rarely supported. – Martin Prikryl Nov 14 '18 at 16:38
  • Thanks I am trying multcloud but is there any indication that the transfer is working ? I dont see any progress – William Nov 14 '18 at 17:00
