Hello @BluePlanet,

Do you have root access to the server? If so, you may find that SSH is an easier way to move files from one location to another:

We also provide a "Getting Started With Linux Commands" document if you are new to SSH:

If you don't have root access to the server, then using FTP to download the files and upload them to the new account is likely the best approach because you won't be able to move files from one account to another using the command line. The other option to consider is to setup a Git repo and then clone the repo from one account to another:

Thank you.
