I want to upload all my project files to the server over SSH, I want to avoid guessing what files I need to upload.

I know GIT does this when remote pushing to Github but I need to upload it directly to my server instead of Github.

Do you need to make a git repo, or do you just want to copy the files to somewhere on your server? – SlightlyCuban Sep 4 '13 at 20:27

Set up a git repository at your server, then you can push stuff over there with no problems. Check the documentation at (there are several tutorials, and even a complete book). Check the documentation of git on how to configure remote branches.
