How to transfer files between a server and a computer

Many times you need to transfer files to/from server. For example, you want to remove the backup file or import a file from your system to the server. There are several methods for this.

prerequisites

To do this, open one of the following programs according to your operating system.

  • Windows: PowerShell
  • Mac: Terminal
  • Linux: Terminal

    Note: In Windows, if SSH is not installed, run the following command in PowerShell to install it.

Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name OpenSSH.Client

Viewing the list of backup files on the server

To be able to see the list of backup files on the server, first SSH to the server and run the following command.

ls /opt/hiddify-config/hiddify-panel/backup

The output of this command is as follows.

Select one of the backup files to transfer.

Transfering the file from the server to the system via scp command

Use this command in the terminal.

scp <user>@<Server's IP>:<path/to/your/file> "Path\in\your\PC"

For example, if the user of your server is root and its IP is 1.1.1.1, you want to remove the backup panel file from your server and enter it into the Backup folder in the C drive of your system, in this case you must enter the following command.

scp root@1.1.1.1:/opt/hiddify-config/hiddify-panel/backup/2023_05_06__06_00_03.json "C:\Backup"\

The work is done. The desired file was copied to the Backup folder.

Transfering the file from the system to the server via scp command

For this, suppose your server user is root and its IP is 1.1.1.1. Also suppose that the text.txt file is located in C:\File and you want to transfer it to the server. In this case, use the following command.

scp "C:\File\text.txt" root@1.1.1.1:/opt/hiddify-config
In this case, the text.txt file will be copied on the server in the desired path and you can view it with the following command.

ls /opt/hiddify-config

Using the web to transfer files

Another way to transfer files is to use SSH service sites. To do this, first enter the details of your server for SSH, and after connecting, the File Manager of the system will open. You can easily transfer your desired files through the web.
