about duplicate installation

hello community,

i've already posted a discussion about this, just can't find it! 

my question concerns duplicate installation, i want to migrate to a remote server.

on behalf of wht is said on the elgg website, 3 things need to be transfered including code.

am using filezilla and it takes ages to do the transfert of code files.

is this normal?

i know it's a silly question, i just panic , i need this to be done as soon as possible and am afraid of not to well understand what is needed to be done.

thank's for the help!
