Backup Ethereum Wallet

This is how I backup my Ethereum root folder (which includes the wallet) from one Ubuntu box to another.

This command is run from the perspective of the receiver-of-the-backup (i.e. where you want the backup to reside).

$ scp -r user@ip:~/.ethereum/ ~/Desktop/backup/

In your backup directory, to make the folder unhidden do this:

$ mv .ethereum ethereum
