Question

Rsync creates one more directory “tests” inside of existing “tests”

Answer

If you don’t want another tests directory created, the correct command would be

rsync -avzp —del -e “ssh -p myport” user@hostname:/var/www/tests/ /var/www/tests Note the / at the end of user@hostname:/var/www/tests/.
