How do I use the
rsync command from a local Windows 7 machine to a remote Linux server?
What software is needed on the Windows 7 machine to use
The remote Linux server is using Amazon's Linux AMI. The command
rsync is already enabled on the machine and I can edit any needed access to the machine.
This is for the purposes of setting up a web server on the remote machine and the editing on my local machine and keeping the files in sync.
I do not want two-way access between the machines, I am only going to be editing files on my local machine and keeping them updated on the remote machine.
I installed cygwin on my Windows 7 machine and installed the rsync package. Can someone provide the steps to set up the connection from the Windows 7 machine to the Linux server remotely?
Say I want to have a folder called
C:\www on my Windows machine and keep it updating
\var\www on my remote machine, how do I do that? It's not a backup per se, it updates the files that I edit with my local computer.
