Macos – Uploading files on Amazon EC2

amazon-ec2macosterminal

I have an Amazon EC2 instance running. When i access the url, I get the Apache Test page, and it says that i'll have to upload my files into /var/html/

My question is, how do i do it?
I use Mac OS X 's terminal for accessing the instance.

FTP doesn't seem to work. Is there any other way?

Best Solution

If you're using a Mac (or other *nix system), simply copy-paste this to terminal to upload a file via SSH

scp -i MyKeyFile.pem FileToUpload.pdf ubuntu@ec2-123-123-123-123.compute-1.amazonaws.com:FileToUpload.pdf

replace "ec2-123-123-123-123.compute-1.amazonaws.com" with your instance's public DNS name
