scp -r /Applications/XAMPP/htdocs/keypairfile.pem uploads ec2-user@publicdns:/var/www/html
where upload is a directory returns Permission denied (publickey).
scp -i /Applications/XAMPP/htdocs/keypairfile.pem footer.php ec2-user@publicdns:/var/www/html
works (notice the flag change).
uploads is an empty folder
These are the file permissions for the uploads directory
drwxrwxrwx 3 kodeeaws admin 102 Nov 15 01:40 uploads
These are the file permissions for /var/www/html
drwxr-x--- 2 ec2-user ec2-user 4096 Jan 5 20:45 html
I've tried changing html to 777 and that doesn't work either.
