Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

Automate scp command using sshpass

Created On: 11 Jul, 2018: 18:54:17 - Tags : command line tools | server management


To use the scp command non-interactively, for example in a script, we can use the sshpass utility.

The following command can be used to copy a file to a remote server:

sshpass -p '{password}' scp {source_file_name} {remote_user}@{remote_server}:{remote_server_path}
