I often use SCP to copy files around - particularly web-related files. The problem is that whenever I do this, I can't get my command to copy hidden files (eg, .htaccess).
I typically invoke this:
scp -rp src/ user@server:dest/
This doesn't copy hidden files. I don't want to have to invoke this again (by doing something like
scp -rp src/.* ... - and that has strange
.. implications anyway.
I didn't see anything in the
scp man page about an "include hidden files".
How can I accomplish this?
