    It can be done by Transloading the file.

    Transloading can only be done if all the files are packed into one archive for easier transfer.

    If same control panel, building a single backup file and then importing it is a good idea as size is drastically reduced.

    Also if you have SSH access, make a zip on old server and using wget, copy onto new server and extract it.

    You can look at the tool called scp (Secure Copy) to assist on the transfer of files from host to host :D

    If your server allow fxp you can use the software flashfxp, is a ftp client but allows to transfer files between 2 servers.

    As Sini told wget is a very good option. However if you have shell access too you can use the "mc" (without quotes) aka Midnight Commander (just like Norton Commander but in linux) to create a ftp link from it and there you go .. you will have two panel and in each one of them the servers. But there are more other options. Let me know if you need a more specific answer.

    Hopefully this helps

    $  cd ~ && scp -r your_username@remotehost.com:~/dir_of files/ .
    Code (markup):
    Or tar them up and use wget if it is installed.

    1. cd to that folder first (by using cd [folder]

    2. you can use a cron job to do this. example (at 4 every morning, using ftp, only downloading and overwriting files newer than what you already have recursively, basicly mirroring):

    0 4 * * * wget --mirror --user=[username] --password=[password] [ftp_url_to_the_folder]

    3. cd to the folder first, then use wget --user=[username] --password=[password] [ftp_url_to_the_folder]/*.gif for example this would download all gif images on the directory specified

    by default wget won't overwrite files, if file already exists it renames the new file to file.1 file.2 and so on, to prevent this use -N option (or --mirror as used in the example above) :)

    You might have to use the full path name for wget too (for example, /usr/local/bin/wget on a BSD system)

    scp or sftp it across


    here is an example if you have shell access


    sftp
    pasword: *******

    cd /path/on/new/server
    put /path/on/old/server/*
