How can I run my local bash script remotely with SSH access?

Could I change the folder before run the script?

You can use this command to access your specific folder (e.g. html), then run your local bash script:

ssh user@remote_host 'cd html && bash ' < ../snippets/myCustomBash.sh
  • Checking cd for errors might possibly make more sense with && instead of the assuming it worked with the ;
