SSH uploading/ downloading

Sep 16, 2013 by ross
Hello

I want to download and upload between my computer and server via SSH command line. My computer runs on Windows 7 OS and I heard that I can’t log to my server via  command line or transfer files to my PC.  Is this true? And if not then how do I download files from the server to my PC using SSH and also how can I upload the file back to the server after editing it.
Can anyone please advice?
Appreciate your support

Download and install the free  WinSCP program. This program enables you to  drag and drop the files between your PC and server.

Hello

you can use FTP from  your SSH. First login to your site via SSH using this code: ftp youdomain.com
To download a file from your server to your pc use this the ‘get’ command and for multiple files use the ‘mget’ command  instead of ‘get’
To upload a file to your server use the ‘put’ command and to upload several files use the ‘mput’ command
