I am able to do scp from local to a specific directory. I just tried copying down an sql dump from my local.
scp -r root@X.X.X.X:/home/userme ./
With this, it does download files, but I got a really old sql that I have since deleted. When I try to do specific newer files, it says: ‘No such file or directory’
I have not succeeded in the direction of doing it from the droplet terminal down to my local. I get permission denied when I tried that.
I had a lot of success of doing images (wp-content) from local up and down to the droplet. Looks like I had success with an sql file as well (this was two weeks ago). But today it is giving me old files.
