I have a Linux server (using azure vm) hosting my code compromising of node.js, Angular. I wish to download all files from the server regularly for a back up. How can I download a zipped file directly from the server using command line?

What I have tried:

So far tried ftp but it looks to be very inefficient way to do it (various skipped files, too much time etc).

Use a FTP program like CuteFTP[^] or WinSCP :: Official Site :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows[^] or if you are looking at scheduled backups, look at What is Azure Backup? - Azure Backup | Microsoft Learn[^]

Thx for reply. Already used Filezilla for this purpose/ftp but my purpose is to download a single zipped file from the server containing all files (for some reason ftp always tends to skip some files and takes too long)

Then you're going to have to setup a job on the server to .ZIP up all the files you want and put that .ZIP in a location where you can download it over FTP.

Yes that's exactly what's needed. However, I need to know the steps to set up a job on the server to zip up all the files (or specific files).
