Last updated: 2022-03-30 15:44:14

    Overview

    The document uses CVMs with CentOS 8.2 as an example to describe how to upload and download files via SCP.

    Prerequisites

    You have purchased a Linux CVM.

    Directions

    Obtaining a public IP

    Log in to the CVM console, navigate to the Instances page, and record the public IP of the CVM to which you want to upload files, as shown below:

    Uploading files

    1. Run the following command to upload files to a Linux CVM.
      scp local file address CVM account@CVM instance public IP/domain name: CVM file location
      

    For example, you can run the following command to upload the local file /home/lnmp0.4.tar.gz to the same directory of the CVM whose public IP is 129.20.0.2:

    scp /home/Inmp0.4.tar.gz root@129.20.0.2:/home/Inmp0.4.tar.gz
    
    Note

    You can add the -r parameter to upload folders. For more information on the scp command, run man scp.

    2. Enter **yes** and press **Enter** to confirm the upload and enter the login password to complete the upload. - If you use a system default password to log in to the instance, you can obtain the password at the [Message Center](https://console.intl.cloud.tencent.com/message). - If you forgot your password, please [reset the instance password](https://intl.cloud.tencent.com/document/product/213/16566).

    Downloading files

    1. Run the following command to download a file from a Linux CVM.
      scp CVM account@CVM instance public IP/domain name: CVM file location local file address 
      

    For example, you can run the following command to download the file /home/lnmp0.4.tar.gz from the CVM whose public IP is 129.20.0.2 to the same local directory:

    scp root@129.20.0.2:/home/Inmp0.4.tar.gz /home/Inmp0.4.tar.gz
