    Hi,

    I'm movig a very large site onto a new server, and I have tried moving the manually created 4Gb cpmove-user.tar.gz file using wget. I get this response:


    Code:
    root@newserver [/backup/cpbackup/daily]# wget http://www.domain.com/cpmove-sbc.tar.gz
    --18:39:59--  http://www.domain.com/cpmove-user.tar.gz
               => `cpmove-user.tar.gz'
    Resolving www.domain.com... XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
    Connecting to www.domain.com|XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX|:80... connected.
    HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden
    18:39:59 ERROR 403: Forbidden.
    
    when I use ftp from shell I get this:

    Code:
    ftp> get cpmove-user.tar.gz
    local: cpmove-user.tar.gz remote: cpmove-user.tar.gz
    227 Entering Passive Mode (XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,XXX,252)
    550 Can't open cpmove-user.tar.gz: File too large
    ftp>
    
    What should I use to move the file across?

    Thanks!

    SCP is great for moving large files over. I have used it to transfer about 10GB accounts over.

    if I remember correctly, using your example above, it would be:

    #scp -p 4000 user.tar.gz user@domain.com:/home/user/

    Actually, it's -P not -p for scp, so the command should be:
    Code:
    #scp [B]-P[/B] 4000 user.tar.gz [email]user@domain.com[/email]:/home/user/

    Transfering Large file

    Hello,

    When i try to move large file many time it fails completing due to network problem or pc is there any way that i can run scp in background so it will keep running even if my local network fails or pc dies.

    Any suggestion will be great.

    -Vishwas.
