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, 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
