scp and cronjob (without password) on OS X
I wanted to copy some files from my computer over to a server every minute, as a cronjob. I searched around the internet but the solutions were scattered all over the place and a lot of “do this and do that” so I decided to put things together in this comprehensive video.
In this video, you will learn:
- How to set up your RSA private/public keys.
- How to set up passwordless SSH access to your server.
- How to “scp” files from your client to your server under your user name.
- How to set up a cronjob to copy your files over to the server once every minute.
