I have recently purchased a VPS with Plesk control panel and I am migrating a website I have on a shared hosting with cPanel.
I have everything configured on the new VPS but now I need to transfer the files from the old server. As it is a MediaWiki website it has too many files, so downloading them to my computer using FTP and later uploading everything to the new server is causing me trouble (for example filenames too long).
Can I transfer all my files from the old server to the new one directly, without having to download everything to my computer?
I am downloading my old website in a tar.gz file. Would it be an option to upload the tar.gz to the VPS and extract the files there, once it is uploaded, so I do not have any problems with the filenames etc. on my computer?
