upload files via terminal

Uploading local folder and files to server easily using terminal

If your server setup support SSH then use following code to upload the folders from local system.

scp -r mydirectory [email protected]:destdir

The -r means “recursive” so it will recursively copy the entire directory. Replace username with your username, etc., etc. destdir is a relative path on the remote server (whatever directory you wind up in if you log in) as long as you don’t use a leading slash / — then it will be an absolute path


scp -r /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/routes/wp-content/uploads/*  [email protected]:/var/www/mytravelroute.com/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/

Note : Run this command on local system.
