The Gzip of the complete backup just appeared in the root of the old forum's space - and the ftp session control on the new server shows the script logged in and moving it across.
Meanwhile - it's bloody hot here today. I'm home alone for the w'end as Helen's away with her Mum - so I don't have the car. I sent Gizmo out to get me a drink. She came back with 4 cans of tuna, and no change. Stupid cat. I'll have to go myself. ;)
