I'd like to send one file to remote host which is defined as alias in drush.

The file is actually private ssh key, so it needs to be placed in ~/.ssh.

I've tried the following command:

drush -v rsync conf/my_rsa @remote:~/.ssh/

but then it's saying:

You will destroy data from drush@remote:'/var/www/~/.ssh/'

I don't want to destroy any existing data in my ~/.ssh.

Any workaround to that?


I've found the following workaround useful:

cat my_rsa | drush @remote ssh "cat > ~/.ssh/my_rsa"

It'll send content of the file directly via ssh into the file.
