How to move your project from Linux/Mac to a Linux server using SCP

This is purely for the comparison. My recent post was about the same thing but on Windows. Nasty business. And here is a guide for Linux/Mac – it is so much easier.

That is because even after generating the keys with PuTTYgen I could not figure out how to “install” them into PuTTY to use a command pscp -scp (the PuTTY scp) in the Command Prompt.

How to move your project from Windows to a Linux server using SFTP

And in Nginx you need to capture (port 80) and redirect it to (port 443). Something like this:

server {
    listen 80;
    return 301$request_uri;
