My preference for daily work is usually GUI applications, like Visual Studio Code for text editing and Cyberduck for remote file server management. I’m also a huge fan of automation, so I do try to learn the command line equivalents of UI functions. My latest desire was wanting to know how to upload a file via SSH from command line.
To upload a file to a remote server from command line, use
scp and the file path with the remote destination:
scp path/to/local/file.png user@hostname:/path/to/upload/
I’ll be honest: I’ll probably still use a GUI for personal uploading, but knowing how to upload via automation is still super valuable!
