I wanted to copy all of the files and folders from my current host to my new server. And I only have FTP access to that current host.
My new server is running Ubuntu, and i hated using the FTP command. But i had to some how download the whole directory of files. Can’t use any gui program.
Finally, i used wget to download the whole directory recursively via ftp.
wget -r ftp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/*
Don’t miss out the ‘*’ at the end.
Hope it helps. 🙂
