I tried uploading files to my new web site using the file manager which took ages, so I configured Smart FTP that I have been using for years and tried again.
This has always been fairly fast and I used it to upload my new site the first time with almost no timeouts.
This old web site is very large (802mb) but in the new control panel it times out after only one or at most 2 files and refuses to upload a folder.
In the past, I highlighted all the files and folders and moved them to the upload page and let it get on with it.
Now with one file at a time it would take me a month! How can I speed things up to the way they were with my first two uploads?
