The '.' (current directory) in this command is the source that
rsync will send and the -a option says (among other things) to recurse
through subdirectories.  The /path/to/directory
part of the command will create one (and only one) new subdirectory
at the end of the path if it doesn't already exist.  If you use
that, you wouldn't have to create the tar file first unless you
want compression or the convenience of having everything in one
file while you rebuild your machine.

If you do make a tar file first, you could use scp instead of
rsync like:
  cd  /dir/with/tarfile
  scp my-tar.tgz  www.mysite.com:/path/to/directory
or with rsync like:
  rsync -essh my-tar.tgz www.mysite.com:/path/to/directory

If you have trouble with either of these, test your ssh
connection with something like:
  ssh www.mysite.com id
If you don't have root access to the other machine you can
specify a user name like:
  ssh user www mysite com id
and connect with the specified user's password.  The same
user host style works in the scp and rsync commands.
