    SCP file from local machine to AWS EC2 instance

    In that example we will scp a file test.csv from testdb2 to testdb1. Testdb1 is the ec2 instance running redhat on aws and testdb2 is local machine running on redhat.

    [root@testdb2 scp_to_aws]$ ls -lrt

    total 8

    -rw-r–r– 1 root users 1359 Dec  6 10:28 test.csv

    -r——– 1 root users 1692 May  5 16:14 recovery-key.pem

    The pem file should have the file permission shown avobe

    Get the Public DNS(IPv4) from AWS EC2 instance

    [root@testdb2 scp_to_aws]$ scp -i recovery-key.pem test.csv ec2-user@ec2-52-39-150-239.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com:/tmp/

    test.csv                                                                                                             100% 1359     1.3KB/s   00:00

    In the avobe command we have scp the test.csv file using pem file to testdb1 ec2 inscance in /tmp location.

    You can check the file test.csv has been transferred to aws instance testdb1

    [ec2-user@ip-172-31-26-102 ~]$ ls -lrt /tmp/
