Transferring File In Terminal on New Server

Now you are ready to pull the file off of your original server onto your new server. Log into your new Linux server through your terminal. After you log in, make sure you are in the right directory! Once you are in the correct directory, enter the following command.

wget https://youroldwebsite.com/bk.zip

This will bring over your bk.zip file onto your new server. If you do not have the wget feature, you can install it with the following command.

apt-get install wget

To confirm that you have wget installed, enter the following command.

dpkg -l | grep wget

You can also check the version of wget by entering this command.

wget --version

RHEL, CentOS and Fedora distro’s

If you have RHEL, CentOS and Fedora distro’s you want to use this command to install wget.

yum install wget

To confirm on these distros.

rpm -qa | grep wget

If you need any other distros with the wget command please see How to Install Wget in Linux (tecmint.com).

Now that you have your bk.zip file, it is time to unzip it. Again, make sure that you are in the correct directory! Enter the following command to unzip your bk.zip file.

unzip bk.zip

If you need to install zip on your new server, see the previous page.

Removing Files in Terminal

Now that you already have your bk.zip file unzipped you can remove it. You can remove the file by entering the “rm” command.

rm bk.zip
