Question

Droplet Download speed OK, Upload speed SLOW

Download speed from server is OK. Upload speed is very slow, like 500 KB/s, it doesn’t matter if I use SFTP, SCP or HTTPS for the transfers. But, there’s no speed limit on multiple transfers, just per transfer. I didn’t touch anything network related, the droplet is new, with Debian 9. Why this poor performance by default? How can I fix it? Thanks

I really don’t know where the defect is, but what will help is to compact your directory in rar or zip. there if you can upload it without problem

provide a backup File and database

I had a similar issue and I had make a speed test using speedtest cli from my droplet.The speedtest(from their official repo) returned very low upload speeds(about 4.5mbp/s).I almost quit digitalocean but luckily i found out it was a bug from speedtest (solution from the link i sent).After redoing the test with the py script, it returned decent results.
