2 Servers (*.12 and *.13)

CakePHP "application" on both of them.

*.12 is "Production" Server
*.13 is "Development" Server

Now I want to copy all files modified in the last 2 days from the test server to the production server WITHOUT the directory ./tmp

I can find them on the production server with:

find ./ -type d -name tmp -prune -o  -mtime -2 -exec ls {} \;

On both servers I have only ssh access.


Although this doesn't grab things only modified in the last two days, you probably want rsync to keep your files in sync:

rsync -av --delete --exclude=./tmp/* ./ user@production:/path/

For the find command, you can uses scp:

find ./ -type d -name tmp -prune -o  -mtime -2 -exec bash -c 'scp "$1" user@production:/path/"$1"' -- {} \;
  • Thanks.. will need to setup rsync then on the development first i think... – Michael Grenzer Mar 30 '13 at 18:19
  • @MichaelGrenzer It's installed by default on most Linux systems. The transfer is done over SSH. – jordanm Mar 30 '13 at 18:20
