Basic Frontend Tools / Episode07 /

SSH, SCP, SFTP and Git FTP

In this episode we are going to take a look at how you can transfer your files SECURELY over the internet. And also a great tool called Git FTP

If you are any kind of developer that works on the internet you would need to transfer your local files to the remote server. Of course you probably already know about FTP, and that is one way you can transfer files. But that is not a secure way.

If you want to transfer your files securely to the remote server you have a couple of options, you could use SSH and SCP to do that via the command line. If you like graphical interfaces you can use any of the hundreds file transfer programs and just use SFTP option provided with most of them.

And lastly I'm going to show you how to push changes to your project using Git FTP tool, so that you can speed up your developer workflow.
