    I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have a dedicated server (WHM/cPanel) and need to direct transfer/migrate files to my Box.com account. Any ideas? is it possible? All normal routes that I have tried, result in very slow transfers, no different than re-uploading files again, so too slow. I need some way to cut out the need for transfers via local.


    Can you help please?

    Many thanks,

    What Linux distro are you using?

    I have not heard of Box.com before. Is it possible to transfer the files via a web browser?

    I have a dedicated server with Codero.com on CentOS/Plesk with full root access etc. and with 4 extra HDDs giving about 5Tb of files of which I wish to move to Box.com (a cloud solution with a great UI where I have an unlimited space account). I can also have API access with Box.com, and they offer the usual FTP, SFTP, WebDav etc. but trying to migrate/transfer files from my dedicated server to Box is far too slow by these methods.

    I cannot believe that there is no other cheap/free alternative for mass file transfer, so I am desperately looking for ideas, help or an app developer or something? I am greatful for any assistance. There is a company called Mover.io but they charge $1 per Gb??
