This question is an exact duplicate of:
I'm trying to SCP a file from my server to another server. The command I'm using is:
scp -i private.ppk -P 22 foo.txt firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/someuser/foo.txt
When I run this via the command line, I get prompted:
The authenticity of host 'domain.com' can't be established. RSA fingerprint is: ... Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
Since I need to do this via PHP (and not the command line), I can't be bothered by these prompts. I think I need to set something in the known_hosts_file to prevent this prompt. Is that correct? If so, how do I do that? How do I set up my server's known_hosts_file so that I don't get prompted?
