       s3cmd  -  tool for managing Amazon S3 storage space and Amazon CloudFront content delivery




       s3cmd is a command line client  for  copying  files  to/from  Amazon  S3  (Simple  Storage
       Service)  and  performing other related tasks, for instance creating and removing buckets,
       listing objects, etc.


       s3cmd can do several actions specified by the following commands.

       One of the most powerful commands of s3cmd is s3cmd sync used for  synchronising  complete
       directory trees to or from remote S3 storage. To some extent s3cmd put and s3cmd get share
       a similar behaviour with sync.

       Basic usage common in backup scenarios is as simple as:
            s3cmd sync /local/path/ s3://test-bucket/backup/

       This  command  will  find  all  files  under  /local/path  directory  and  copy  them   to
       corresponding paths under s3://test-bucket/backup on the remote side.  For example:
            /local/path/file1.ext         ->  s3://bucket/backup/file1.ext
            /local/path/dir123/file2.bin  ->  s3://bucket/backup/dir123/file2.bin

       However  if  the  local path doesn't end with a slash the last directory's name is used on
       the remote side as well. Compare these with the previous example:
            s3cmd sync /local/path s3://test-bucket/backup/
       will sync:
            /local/path/file1.ext         ->  s3://bucket/backup/path/file1.ext
            /local/path/dir123/file2.bin  ->  s3://bucket/backup/path/dir123/file2.bin

       To retrieve the files back from S3 use inverted syntax:
            s3cmd sync s3://test-bucket/backup/ ~/restore/
       that will download files:
            s3://bucket/backup/file1.ext         ->  ~/restore/file1.ext
            s3://bucket/backup/dir123/file2.bin  ->  ~/restore/dir123/file2.bin

       Without the  trailing  slash  on  source  the  behaviour  is  similar  to  what  has  been
       demonstrated with upload:
            s3cmd sync s3://test-bucket/backup ~/restore/
       will download the files as:
            s3://bucket/backup/file1.ext         ->  ~/restore/backup/file1.ext
            s3://bucket/backup/dir123/file2.bin  ->  ~/restore/backup/dir123/file2.bin

       All  source  file  names, the bold ones above, are matched against exclude rules and those
       that match are then re-checked against  include  rules  to  see  whether  they  should  be
       excluded or kept in the source list.

       For  the  purpose  of  --exclude and --include matching only the bold file names above are
       used.  For  instance  only  path/file1.ext   is   tested   against   the   patterns,   not

       Both --exclude and --include work with shell-style wildcards (a.k.a. GLOB).  For a greater
       flexibility s3cmd provides Regular-expression versions of the two  exclude  options  named
       --rexclude and --rinclude.  The options with ...-from suffix (eg --rinclude-from) expect a
       filename as an argument. Each line of such a file is treated as one pattern.

       There is only one set of patterns built from all --(r)exclude(-from) options and similarly
       for  include  variant.  Any file excluded with eg --exclude can be put back with a pattern
       found in --rinclude-from list.

       Run s3cmd with --dry-run to verify that your rules work as expected.   Use  together  with
       --debug  get  detailed  information  about matching file names against exclude and include

       For example to exclude all files with ".jpg"  extension  except  those  beginning  with  a
       number use:

            --exclude '*.jpg' --rinclude '[0-9].*.jpg'

       To exclude all files except "*.jpg" extension, use:

            --exclude '*' --include '*.jpg'

       To exclude local directory 'somedir', be sure to use a trailing forward slash, as such:

            --exclude 'somedir/'


       For the most up to date list of options run: s3cmd --help
