Using SCP in Mac


There are times when we need to upload files via command line. Luckily, Mac offers an SCP software built-in unlike Windows that you’ll need to install WinSCP.

To do so, open a terminal and run the following commands:

scp username@remotecomputer:/path/to/file/you/want/to/copy where/to/put/file/on/laptop

Then we’ll just need to type the password of that username over SSH.

For example, scp root@ /home/web/site-name/public_html/files
