This guide requires you have either set up SSH at webspace creation time or afterwards by following the port forwarding guide.
Managing a website often means needing to transfer files to the server hosting the site. With SSH configured, you can transfer files via SCP or SFTP.
SCP (Linux / Mac / Windows)
scp is a command line tool (like
cp) to transfer files over SSH. From your
terminal, run it like this:
scp -P 64363 /path/to/local/file.txt firstname.lastname@example.org:/remote/path/
Don't forget to change the port based on your configured SSH forwarding port!
Cyberduck (Mac / Windows)
Cyberduck is a free graphical file transfer client. Once installed, click the "Open Connection" button and enter your details as before (be sure to chose the SFTP connection type):
Once connected, you should be able to navigate around your webspace's files (by
default you'll be in
root user's home directory.) Click the up
arrow in the top right to get to the root directory (
/). You can then drag
and drop files in / out of your webspace!
