I am just getting started setting up my dream compute server. I have managed to get the following accomplished:
Connect via SSH
Add user (w/ SSH)
Setup virtual hosting and user directory
Move generic index.html to user home directory
How do I copy something, like my index.html file to my server? I am using “scp”. This is what I used:
$ scp -i ~/.ssh/.pem index.html @:/home///index.html
- Is there a third-party software that can be used?
- What do you recommend to make building a website (presumably making lots of small changes often) “easy” when it comes to uploading files to my server?
p.s. The articles were very helpful. The only roadblock I hit was figuring out how to copy via ssh. Well really even first understanding that is what I needed to even use, i.e. something like ‘scp’. Then I kept getting “user permission denied” errors. So that got me to using the key-pair with it. anyways my point being there wasn’t enough info IMO on this and could have saved me a few hours. =) Did I miss this resource on here somewhere?
Thanks for the assistance!
