Rackspace Cloud Migration Download

Recently I’ve moved from Rackspace cloud US to the UK, and as such needed to transfer a large amount of data from my cloud files. Rackspace will not provide this service for customers unfortunately due to many legal hoops required when handling customer data, therefore I had to create a solution of my own to save doing this manually
Thankfully RS do provide a PHP SDK for their cloudfiles API, available here. You will need to have this installed as well as the php script for the script to function correctly

Please note that you will need to create a container in your UK cloudfiles to transfer into. Also note that you use this script at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any data loss/corruption as a result of using this script
