hey, how do i upload files from my computer to a linux server? what would the code be? thanks
Assuming the "linux server" has some sort of serivce such as FTP, then you would use an FTP client to upload the files to your "linux server".
well currently i'm using putty to access the server, however i dont know how to upload things to the server
im not running windows. im running linux
Then just regular 'scp' from your linux to your linux server.
scp file1 [email protected]ath
Hold on, you said you were using PuTTY!
PuTTY is for windows, not linux. Make up your mind
WinSCP to upload from windows host.
console scp to upload from linux host.
im using putty on linux. you can google putty .rpm and you'll find it
im just beginning to use linux, so sorry if im not used to this stuff. i tried going to the directory of a file i wanted to send to the server, and did what you said with the scp, and it's not on the server. is there anything i would do in putty?
man 1 scp
Make sure you are doing it right.
thanks. i think this will help me out
sftp if for some wierd reason the host doesnt support scp
actually, i just opened the linux terminal and opened the ftp command and sent it that way, so it's working!
If ssh is installed it has scp.
That is why I suggested it
Easiest to use, installed by default.
Perfect for new setups.
5/5 - Insightful.
