How to Install on Dreamhost hosting site ssh on Sandy server with no root/sudo access

root/sudo access is not available on DreamHost managed servers

curl | sudo bash

hello and welcome to the forum,

rclone is a portable app, does not need to be installed.

download the .zip file from here,

trying to do a cloud to cloud transfer to dreamhost from a google drive url. Will portable work for that task or does it need to be a server side install on dreamhost. Thank You

  1. run rclone where ever you want. if you want to copy to the dreamhost, then install it on the dreamhost server

  2. create and test a remote for gdrive.

google drive to sftp worked on about 50 videos first time I tried it now getting error
Failed to copy: Update ReadFrom failed: failed to send packet: EOF
uploads about 30-50% of transfer then error and begins next transfer
is there a way to restart transfer if incomplete also? Tx

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

was having sftp: Update ReadFrom failed: failed to send packet: EOF errors and very slow

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Windows 10 64 bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive / sftp

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone sync gdrive:xxx/xxx sftp:xxx/xxx --transfers=1 --progress

solved the issue, working flawlessly on 40.666 GBytes transfer with 252 files, Speed average 333.9 kbytes/s.

issued solved, Thank You
