I had to copy almost 10Gb from one server to another.
Usually I use rsync but this time the user that I have on the remove server is just an FTP user.
My first and dumb option was to use wget to fetch the content! *DUMB!*.
After a few hours/day… I got Write failed: Broken pipe.
OK!, I’v decided to use lftp.
So… I needed to install simply by doing….
apt-get install lftp
Connect to the server
Enter the username
then enter the password…
and the the magic command!
mirroc -c -p
-c – resume option
-p – download files in parallel
HOORAY!, thats kinda it.
lftp [email protected]:~> mirror -c -p Total: 2184 directories, 97729 files, 0 symlinks New: 25548 files, 0 symlinks 9900721069 bytes transferred in 2750916 seconds (3.5 KiB/s) lftp [email protected]:/>
