    Now we are tring to transfer data from old server to new server. In our old server, we use "Second Hard Drive Backup", in our new server we use "ftp backup". So I think I have to download the backups files from the old server and then upload them to our ftp server, right? I think I can use ssh to download it from oldserver/backup and then upload it to newserver/cpbackup, is there a better way to do it?

    Do you have a second drive in the new server? If so use scp/rsync to move the backups to the new servers /backup drive and just do a restore.

    Regarding the ftp backups, you may want to just put a 2nd drive in there if possible the ftp backups are not exactly the best backup method.
