http://askubuntu.com – I need to copy files from my computer to my server's folders in /var/www so they are uploaded to my cloud. Here's what I try to do: I open my computer's terminal and type: scp /media/user/Files/Documents/documents.docx ubuntu@mywebsite[email protected]:/var/www/documents Notes on this step The hard drive that I am trying to copy the file from is an NTFS formatted drive. I use this drive to store all my media on, in other words it has no operating system on it. I use a separate SSD with dual boot for my operating system. Also, this drive is mounted when I do this.
