    Hi guys n' gals,

    Is there anyway to have multiple streams/accounts being backed up to FTP at the same time?

    Currently only a single account backup stream runs at a time

    I backup from the US to the UK and never seem to get above 100Kb/s

    If I could run multiple streams, my backup window would be smaller

    Thanks

    Uni

    Hi,

    Yeah it can be done via a written script and added into the cron job. Assuming you are good at writing some scripts in php, I hope that will help you to get your task done ftp - Web site backup in PHP? - Stack Overflow

    For further help, please feel free to contact :)

    Maybe I should backup locally, then WinSCP the folder down - pull instead of push?

    Hi UniSol,

    So easy, try the above script and that will definitely work for backups & for WinSCP use "pull".
