Question: I was downloading a large file using SCP, but the download transfer failed in the middle because my laptop got disconnected from the network. Is there a way to resume the interrupted SCP transfer where I left off, instead of downloading the file all over again? Answer: Originally based on BSD RCP protocol, SCP (Secure copy) is a mechanism that allows you to transfer a file between two end points over a secure SSH connection. However, as a simple secure copy protocol, SCP does not understand range-request or partial transfer like HTTP does. As such, popular SCP implementations like the scp command line tool cannot resume aborted downloads from lost network connections. If you want to resume an interrupted SCP transfer, you need to rely on other programs which support range requests. One popular such program is rsync. Similar to scp, rsync can also transfer files over SSH. Suppose you were trying to download a file (bigdata.tgz) from a remote host using scp, but the SCP transfer was stopped in the middle due to a stalled SSH connection. You can use the following rsync command to easily resume the stopped transfer. Note that the remote server must have rsync installed as well. $ cd /path/to/directory/of/partially_downloaded_file $ rsync -P -rsh=ssh ./bigdata.tgz The "-P" option is the same as "--partial --progress", allowing rsync to work with partially downloaded files. The "-rsh=ssh" option tells rsync to use ssh as a remote shell. Once the command is invoked, rsync processes on local and remote hosts compare a local file (./bigdata.tgz) and a remote file (, determine among themselves what portion of the file is not the same, and transfer the discrepancy to either end. In this case, missing bytes in the partially downloaded local file is downloaded from a remote host. Add a comment

What is it? .htaccess is a configuration file for use on web servers running the Apache Web Server software.

.htaccess files can be used to alter the configuration of the Apache Web Server software to enable/disable additional functionality and features that the Apache Web Server software has to offer.

Ie. Can be used for password protection, hotlinking prevention, error handling etc .htaccess works in the directory you place it. Some uses: Can be used to set:

1.Expire headers Expire Headers are added to tell the browser how often it has to fetch files afresh from the server based on a specific expiry data.

2.Cache Control Headers Tells the browser how long files should be cached before they should be loaded anew.

This is important to make sure it does not reload files too often.

3.gZip Compress files and make them easier to download by the browsers. Browsers decompress on the fly.

4.Deflate It’s a compression technique same as gzip. Some servers work with only gzip or deflate. Ifmodule checks if it’s enabled.

5.Re-Writing URLs. This is good for SEF URLs.

### Additional Settings that may need to be enabled for some servers
### Uncomment the commands by removing the # sign in front of it.
### If you get an "Internal Server Error 500" after enabling any of the following settings, restore the # as this means your host doesn't allow that.

# 1. If your cart only allows you to add one item at a time, it is possible register_globals is on. This may work to disable it.
# php_flag register_globals Off

# 2. If your cart has magic quotes enabled, this may work to disable it.
# php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off

# 3. Set max upload file size. Most hosts will limit this and not allow it to be overridden but you can try.
# php_value upload_max_filesize 999M

# 4. Set max post size. Uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields.
# php_value post_max_size 999M

# 5. Set max time script can take. Uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields.
# php_value max_execution_time 200

# 6. Set max time for input to be received. Uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields.
# php_value max_input_time 200

# 7. Disable open_basedir limitations
