Hey friend,

Great question! I highly recommend using rsync for this. It’s definitely my go-to for copying data from one server to another.


  • can you please explain me how to use it . i have a 2 droplet one is old and one is new i want data from old droplet to new droplet

    • Let’s say I’ve connected via SSH to NewServer and I want the data in /var/www from OldServer moved over. I’d do this on NewServer:

      cd /var && rsync -avz root@OldServer:/var/www .

      It’s going to be relative to your needs, so it’s hard to give exact steps.
