    ALoha or Gidday

    Newbie to this VPS thing but I'm loving VirtualMin and WebMin - extraordinary when compared to the alternatives that I first tested out.

    In the process of migrating some shared hosting accounts, I've used the Wordpress Duplicator plugin to create packages that are around 500M. I found that Webmin has an 'Upload and Download' function that really brightened my day - save me all that FTPing up and down from my local machine.

    The problem is that I always get 'Download failed : HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found', no matter what path I put in there. I've tried it directly in my browser and the download wants to start so I know the path is fine.

    Am I missing something obvious, that anyone could help me with? Any help appreciated.
    Cheers
    Martin

    Whoops - what a dope I was.
    Eventually figured out that I needed to disable the VPS server and it's DNS so it could 'see' the live server and access the files :)
    Did a WGET which all worked out fine and dandy. Apologies for stupidness.
