Using SCP to upload or download a file through SSH

By North Street, A Creative Studio

Typically this would be used in conjunction with creating a tar.gz file of a site, (as discussed here.)

Use scp To copy from your local computer to the remote, type, in the local computer:

scp -v /tmp/file [email protected]:/home/name/dir

(where /tmp/file can be replaced with any local file and /home/name/dir with any remote directory)

To copy from the remote computer to the local one, type, in the local computer:

scp -v [email protected]:/home/name/dir/file /tmp/

(protip: It helps to know the full path of the directories and files. Use the “pwd” to obtain that.)
