Hi, I'm new to website construction and management and all that wonderful stuff.
I'm transferring an existing website from one server to another (I didn't write the website, just moving it) and I used an FTP client to move all of the files from the old IP to my computer, then from my computer to the new IP... Except none of the formatting and pictures from the old site transferred over... The site is there and all of the text and links display and work properly, but that's it.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Welcome to the forums P34c3m4k3r,
No worries it shouldn't be a massive issue. In regards to the styling, I'd assume there was an external cascading style sheet [w3.org] that was being used to style the web page, which you perhaps had omitted from your download of the site. Also the case for the images?
An easy way for you to find them is to look at the source code of your website (go to "view" in your browser options and "view source") and find something like this
