    hi
    i make a backup and store it in public_html
    like that : http://www.domain.com/backup-2.2.2008_06-20-19_domain.tar.gz
    when try to download this file say :

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /backup-2.2.2008_06-20-19_domain.tar.gz on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    i want to transfer it via SSH to new server

    any help ?

    thanks in advance :D

    The permissions keep just anyone from downloading the file and possibly getting access information etc. You really should not put the file in the public_html directory, but rather in the root of the account and download via ftp.

    change the permissions on the file then. Keep in mind that anyone could then download the file :(

    0644 should have been fine. Have you tried to see if you can download via a browser just to verify? What steps are you using trying to do this copy?

    You can run a backup to a remote server if you are trying to copy a backup to another server.
