copy.com is a very nice new cloud storage app similar to Dropbox, Google drive etc...
so this is how you install it on headless Linux machine:
1) Sign up at their website (through this link you will get 20gb free, I will get an additional 5gb)
Sign up here
Now the rest of the instructions are from the terminal:
2) Download the linux client
3) Extract it:
tar xvzf Copy.tgz
4) Navigate to a directory according to your platform
for 32bit linux:
for 64bit linux:
5) Execute the following command (one line) pay attention to the arguments which you must replace:
./CopyConsole -u=the_mail_you_signed_up_with -r=/home/your_linux_username/copy -p=the_password_you_signed_up_with
6) Let it run until you see:
Logged in as user: 'the_mail_you_signed_up_with' Copy folder is: '/home/your_linux_username/copy'
Press enter to exit
7) press ctrl-z to send the command to the background
You did it! you are now running copy.com client on your headless machine.
Some of the benefits which I find for using this new service are the following:
20 GB of free storage: 15 + 5 if you sign up using a referral link (I get an additional 5 GB you use mine)
Multi platform support: Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, IOS
Headless option (super cool feature for servers, and for some developers)
limited time opportunity to rack up huge amounts of extra free storage though their referral program (do not miss it)
