Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Have plans to migrate a website I administrate from one host to another. It's decently large-sized in scale, and I'm in a bit of a bind that hopefully someone can help me through.

I'm trying to minimize downtime as much as possible, and the major source of time is making sure that permissions are set properly on all files and folders on the new host. Unfortunately, using a program like FileZilla to download via FTP and then upload to the new site wipes the permissions out, and an inquiry on the program's community boards revealed that the program can neither maintain permissions nor compile a list of permissions for the directory tree. Can anyone here point me to an FTP program that'll allow me to transfer my files and folders between hosts with permissions intact, or at the least generate some type of list of permissions to refer to so I'm not stuck constantly switching between the two hosts or recording the permissions manually?

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Hmm I can't tell you for sure but look into rsync and SCP to see if these two are options for you.

I looked into SCP, which led me to this...

http://www.flashfxp.com

...which led me to discover that the host I'm moving from doesn't support remote-to-remote connections. So that idea's out.

What I'm aiming to find, then, is a program I can install onto my Windows PC that can connect to a remote site via FTP and generate a file information list on a particular directory and its sub-directories, with the permissions information being of primary importance. Any ideas?

I don't know anything that specifically does what you want to do, but I do remember last time I had to I switched hosts, I gave my new host the information to my old account, and they were able to move the entire account intact, including permissions.

I don't know if it was just because I was going from cPanel to cPanel or if it was something else they were doing, but it's worth talking about this to your new host if you haven't already.

I've heard a lot of talk about ZabaSearch. It searches publicly able government records as well as some commercial sources. A lot of people say that it violates their privacy because it's so easy to find people, so I guess it works pretty good.
