Faster website moving with lftp

by Pascal Opitz on April 1 2006, 09:00

Consider lftp to be the better alternative to ftp when it comes to moving your website. Unlike the standard ftp command line client it had the function “mirror”.
And that is a dead handy one when you don’t want to ftp your whole website down to your machine and back to the new host …

After grabbing the source from the german mirror site I compiled the program with the usual linux commands (./configure, make, make install).

Then move to the HTML folder on the new machine, type lftp -u myuser myhost to log onto the FTP server. There, move to the directory that you wanna grab and then type mirror . and that’s it.
