Default copy site

Davidj

I'm trying to do just that - but I am having issues... I have built the entire site - which works - and I need to copy it all back to my hard drive - and re-upload it to the new server - but I don't know how to do that - how do I access it to copy it?

any ftp client will work

just connect to your remote server (host) and copy it back
