How to transfer files from your server to Amazon cloud storage via SSH? I could do this via backup option in WHM but I would like to do same function via SSH. Does anyone know?

Basically, for migrating files between two VPS instances, you could try using "rsync". The basic transfer can be done by using:

rsync -avz transferable_directory/ [email protected]:/destination/

However rsync has other useful parameters if needed, so you should look up to it's documentation.

How to have rsync on my server?

I don't think it can help me to transfer files from my Linux server directly to Amazon cloud storage.

Either use scp to transfer your files, just google a bit and you will find what you are looking for.

I think you are referring Amazon cloud storage, as S3.

One way, is to install aws-cli and use it to sync folder to S3 bucket. You just need IAM credentials.

I stumbled upon another tool named rclone. Never used it. Try it out.

Hello @FerdieQO,
the easiest will probably be to use rclone, it's a tool similar to rsync but for cloud storage like Amazon S3.
Installation guide is available here : https://rclone.org/install/
And AWS S3 file transfer guide is available here : https://rclone.org/s3/
