Using multiple versions of jQuery on the same page

Can I use multiple versions of jQuery on the same page?
Yes!

Thankfully, jQuery’s noConflict function comes to the rescue.








Then, instead of using $(‘#selector’).function();,
you can use jQuery_1_7_1(‘#selector’).function();
or jQuery_1_4_4(‘#selector’).function();

Imagine you want to switch to a new dedicated server and your current website size is say 5 GB. It becomes really cumbersome to first download the entire website to your local PC and then upload it to your new server.

This is the Linux scp command syntax to retrieve file or directory FROM a remote computer:

scp -r login name@ip-address :/path/filename .

the last period (.) tell the shell to copy the files to the current directory

This is the Linux scp command syntax to send file or directory TO a remote computer:

scp -r /path/filename login_name@ip-address : .
