Download a Folder
I realized that my VPS does not allow me to download or upload any folders. Is there a way around this or some way that I can download a folder? Is there an SSH command that I can use to do this? Can I change the file type into something that I can download, and then change it back?
Any help would be much appreciated. I am trying to download a map folder and want to have it saved, if you can help me get it download, I would be very thankful.
You could use SFTP with SSH. The easiest way is to use Filezilla with an SFTP connection. The connection is made the same way as a regular FTP connection except with your SSH login details and server address/IP.
Okay, I downloaded Filezilla. When I enter the server IP (no port) and SSH logins, it has problems connecting. I left the port blank. All I did was download the client of filezilla and try to connect. Am I missing something or is this a problem that can be fixed?
Edit : Nevermind, figured it out. Had to change some settings. Thank you!
in filezilla you have to create a new connection, it may work if you enter port 22 but I normally save all my connections anyway so I haven't tested.
so steps would be:
1) click File > Site Manager
2) click New Site
3) enter the following details:
host: (your server IP or hostname)
server type: SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)
login type: normal
user: your ssh username
password: ssh password
That should be all you need. If you save it you won't have to enter it again (lest you change the password)
