Can I pull a database from my computer to a remote server?

#1 Post by noodles » 2018-06-15 18:19

Hello,

I'm a server admin and I need to transfer a 90KB database from my computer (east coast US) to my server (west coast US).

Previously I used Filezilla Client and started the transfer from home computer to server, but it literally took 5 days to complete!
This was a SQL .bak file which for some reason will not restore.

I feel I need to now transfer the actual 4 database files (data, indexes and log files) but I don't want to take another 5 days to do so.

Can I initiate the transfer at the server using Filezilla Server (which I have installed on server along with client)???

Would this take less time?

Or do I need to initiate again from my home computer using Client?

Thanks in advance!

90KB? If it takes more than 0.5 seconds there's something very wrong with your setup.

Only clients can initiate transfers, servers are only listening for requests.
