cec cp

Copy files from A to B within your remote server



Copy files from one location to another within a single Pydio Cells instance. To copy files from the client machine to your server (and vice versa), rather see the './cec scp' command.


In version 2.1, we only support the '' wild char as a standalone token of the source path, that is: - './cec cp common-files/test/ common-files/target' is legit and will copy all files and folder found in test folder on your server to the target folder - './cec cp common-files/test/.jpg ...' or './cec cp common-files/test/ima ...'
will not work as some might expect: the system looks for a single file named respectively '.jpg' or 'ima' and will probably fail to find it (unless if a file with this name exists on your server...)


# Copy file "test.txt" from workspace root inside target "folder-a": ./cec cp common-files/test.txt common-files/folder-a

# Copy a file from a workspace to another: ./cec cp common-files/test.txt personal-files/folder-b

# Copy the full content of a folder inside another ./cec cp common-files/test/* common-files/folder-c

./cec cp [flags]
