How do I transfer a tarball from my web server (e.g. to an Amazon S3 bucket? Do I have to download it locally and upload it?

Best Answer

If you have an SSH access to your server and you can use the amazon tools (e.g. the ec2-api-tools package on Ubuntu), then you can upload your tarball directly from your server. However, if you only have FTP access to it, your only choice (afaik) is to download it and upload it from your workstation.
