    I'll try to help as much as I can.

    I work for one of the top 5 Hosting companies in the business, i've just about seen every server side issue, from a simple permissions issue all the way to rsyncing data to failed drives and chassis swaps.

    What's sad is, I sit 9 hours a day at a 3 20 inch monitor setup troubleshooting, and I still have fun doing it off the clock. So if you guys need help, or just have a shitty host or a crappy server that needs a tweakin, post in this thread and i'll see if I can help, we'll all learn a thing or two, heck maybe there are others who can teach me something as well. :) Post away fellas.

    If it's a linux-plesk issue, post it. I'm just beginning to learn Plesk and we all would learn a great deal. I'm more into:

    cPanel, Apache, Exim, Mysql, php (and errors), global server issues, qmail, etc.

    Thanks for the offer, I'll give you a try.

    I am trying to move ~30gb of files from one server to another. I am shelling into the server that I want to recieve the files on and then use this command to retrieve the files from the other server

    (ssh [email protected] "tar -zcpf - / 2>/dev/null" ) | tar -zxvpf -

    It works however, it transfers everything on the server. I would like to be able to transfer just 1 directory, ex: domain/dir/dir

    Is this possible?

    You really suck at guessing. :) Never in my wildest dreams would i step foot in there. Good try though!!

    but I would agree with you, it must suck, majority of them are reboot monkeys anyways.. :p

    Try using SCP:

    For public key try

    scp -i /path/to/key [email protected]:/path/to/dir* /location/to/download

    or

    scp [email protected]:/path/to/dir* /location/to/download

    then it will prompt you for a password.

    Another ghetto way is (if your using apache) is

    tarring up the directory -- putting it into /etc/httpd/htdocs then adding a users to the system and do a ftp wget when logged into the remote box. hope this helps.
