I'm moving from one VPS to another, and I figured that the simplest way to transfer data would be
However, the data is owned by a user,
www-data, which doesn't have ssh privileges, and I'd like it to be owned by the same (named) user on the target machine. Obviously I need all file permissions preserved. I have SSH access via another user with
sudo privileges on both machines.
Is this possible to do this with rsync?
