Re: Upload file and overwrite file via command line (batch script)

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Upload file and overwrite file via command line (batch script)


I'm new with WinSCP and want to upload a file with command line (batch file) into a subdirectory of my SFTP server. When I start the script again the file should be overwritten.

The upload via batch file will be done successfully at the first start.
But when I start the batch file again, the file will not overwritten on my ftp.
What is wrong in my script:

open sftp://xxxxxx -hostkey="xxxxxxxx yy:yy...."
option confirm off
mkdir testdir
mkdir testdir/sub_test
put "myfile.txt" /testdir/sub_test/

Hope anyone can help.
kind regards
