You can easily move files from one server to another with the SCP command.
1. Open an SSH session in Terminal
2. Navigate to files/folder you wish to move
3. Optionally tar.gz the files/folder
4. In Terminal type: scp file.tar.gz firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/where/to/want/to/put/file.tar.gz
That will open an SSH tunnel from the local server to the remote server. Then it will initiate the transfer of the files fr you. This saves a nice bit of time, since you are not FTP’ing down and back up to the other location.
-p Preserves the modification and access times, as well as the permissions of the source-file in the destination-file
-q Do not display the progress bar
-r Recursive, so it copies the contents of the source-file (directory in this case) recursively
-v Displays debugging messages
