    Hi,

    I need to move a customer\'s account from another hosting provider to my server.

    Is there a way to transfer all the files in one go?

    Searching on the net I found some information about rcp but it seems the old host does not allow this command. And have pulled most of my hair off trying to make FTP transfer in a recursive way...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Hedgy

    Does your hosting provider allow scp?
    If so, the syntax is:
    scp -r file 123.456.789.000:/directory/

    Where 123.456.789.000 is the IP address of the new server.
