Send gcode files to octoprint via SCP

#1

If I copied a file via scp directly into the folder where octoprint stores the .gcode files locally, does octoprint immediately see it?

#2

No. Use the watched folder for that. That also has the file get the proper processing it needs to get to be a valid upload.

and that path is:

/home/pi/.octoprint/watched

where pi is whatever username? Tested it and it works.

#4

It is that path unless the user has reconfigured that path in the Settings or via config.yaml.

#5

And OctoPrint is well-behaved for large files; it will know if it's still being streamed and leave it alone until it stops.
