Fastest way to uplaon whole site


Guest

Recommended Posts

I have tried uploading through dreamweaver and also smart FTP but it takes for ever.

 

Anyone know of a good way to uplaod fast.

 

Its not my uplaod speed, its just that with the 2 programs i used it can only upload 1 file at a time so takes for ever to go through for example the admin directory which has over 500 files.

 

Any suggestions would be a great help

 

Thanks in advance

Sorry i should have mentioned, Im using broadband so somet like 22kbs upload speed i think.

 

Its not a speed issue its just that the way them 2 programs i have used upload is 1 file at a time and i need somet to uplaod multiple files at a time or something that doesnt take as long to read the file information then upload it then come back to read next file info then uplaod etc etc.

 

500 files takes like an hour regardless of speed and file size, becuase there all small files its the time it takes the program to work out what its doing that takes up the time.

dude it is your internet speed, I had over 1,000 files and it took me 20 minutes to upload them

 

I have little over 128kbs upload. So I advise you get an higher internet speed that has more than 128kbs.

 

and I also use SmartFTP for my uploads

you can create a gzip or something your server supports to unzip,

and unpack it on your server.

you will need ssh access (using for example putty).

 

edit: that will take me about a few minutes for 65MB unpacked.

quite a bit less than 20 minutes anyway

 

and the number of files is more relevant then upload speed when it concerns very small files

that is why a packed file is so much faster

I don't do uploads like that too much, but backups I do like that, so fast, including all subdirectories.

Including a complete mysqldump in the tar then too using mysqldump

try a complete site backup in under a 2 minutes or so

 

think my *problem* there is that my site is already up, and I don't change too many files at a time,

so ftp then is faster.

I do not use Cpanel, I use Putty for that.

You will require SSH access. That gets you the linux commandline (in case you are working on a linux sever).

from the commandline you just enter the untar / unzip / ... command. perhaps your hoster can better help you with that (location of the command, what you can and cannot unzip / untar / ...)

or even if you have root access on ssh.
