Basic command for uploading files



[PORT NUMBER] : The default port number is 22. We can specify other than that also.

[PATH OF YOUR LOCAL FILE] : Your source file ( From which location you need to upload files). i.e. your local system path.

[USERNAME] : Your server’s username from which name you are accessing the server

[HOST] : Your server’s IP address or domain name to access the server

[DESTINATION PATH] : To which location your files needs to upload.


scp -P 225 /home/anillabs/Desktop/testdb.sql [email protected]:/www/phpproject/db/

It is only for example.
