How do I backup my files to my website?

Hello there,

I have a website with unlimited space, and I want to back up my personal data on my website, and sync them later.

is there any way or a program to do that?
I installed OwnCloud, which is really great but doesn't support syncing yet.

Since you didn't share the site capabilities

I'll mention FileZilla which can sync with FTP servers. Many web servers offer FTP so why not fast syncing over FTP?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'site capabilities', I'm not a pro, but totally can do some cool stuff GrinSilly

I'll try FileZilla and see what happens.

Thank you Happy

A site's capabilities...

In reply to: R. Proffitt

Could be FTP, file sharing over a number of protocols, scripts on the backend and so on.

I tend to go with FTP just for sheer speed.

I have no idea actually, it's just a good web hosting, that I've been with for 2 years, and I rn a blog, so I thought why not use the space to back up my files in case something happens to my laptop and my external hard drive.
