SCP
What is SCP ?

SCP-Secure Copy (SCP) is an SSH (Secure Shell) protocol that provides secure file transfers between two computers. With SCP, you can quickly transfer files using the command prompt, which is usually faster and easier than using a graphical interface client. In addition, you can use this command line functionality in your own batch file and script to automate file transfers.

After you download a file that PSCP can execute to your local computer, you must add the directory where pscp.exe is on your path so you can run it from any directory. After you have done that, you are ready to transfer the file to your A2 Hosting account and to your account. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Open the DOS command window. To do this, click Start, click Run, type cmd, then press Enter.
  • Type the following command to upload the file to your A2 Hosting account. Replace both usernames with your Hosting A2 username and example.com with your site's domain name.
