Tryed to copy log file locally using scp.

scp [email protected]:var/log/payment.log /var/www/some-folder/payment.log


Could not create directory '/app/.ssh'.
Warning: Permanently added 'ssh.ap-3.magento.cloud,' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
Permission denied (publickey).

magento-cloud repo:cat command returns only files from git.

Is there a way to copy a file locally from the cloud using console?


At the moment, the problem is not observed.

  • Do you run scp command on server or localy?

Use magento-cloud scp tool:

magento-cloud scp remote:var/log/fileToCopy .

For more information magento-cloud scp --help


Use rsync instead of scp. This command copies file from a remote server to local machine:

rsync [email protected]:var/log/payment.log /var/www/some-folder/payment.log

Run this below command & it will copy all files under var/log into your current directory from where your run this command

magento-cloud scp remote:var/log/* .

After Running this commands:

  1. Select the Project
