Today i want to move a site from linux server to windows.
Moving with FTP takes long. Normal tar.gz transfer will not work as windows by default do not support extraction of tar.gz file.
To create a ZIP file on linux, run
zip -9 -y -r -q FILE_NAME.ZIP FOLDER_HERE
# zip -9 -y -r -q httpdocs.zip httpdocs
Now i transfer the file to remote windows server with FTP. The server have FTP access configured for user administrator, this is not secure, but that is how the server is configured.
# ftp 126.96.36.199 Connected to 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206). 220 Microsoft FTP Service Name (220.127.116.11:root): administrator 331 Password required for administrator.
