Whats the best way of deploying PHP code from a Linux Server to a Remote Windows Server?

Hi there,
Im building Symfony PHP projects for use on a Windows IIS/PHP server (I know, I cant change it). Anyway, usually I develop on Linux and use an Rsync method built into Symfony to deploy to another linux server. I cant do that with Windows 2008 server  though, any thoughts on tools or methods that would avoid uploading the full 50Mb code every time? Ive tried FreeSSHd on the server but cant get 64bit rsync.exe or cygwin dlls that will work with the rsync on Debian Lenny...

Any help appreciated!

Hi!

You can use 'lftp'. It's great for mirroring files and you'd just need FTP on the Windows server.

Or just fetch the program with apt-get.

Example to mirror to sites:

SOURCEPATH="/pub/source/"
DESTPATH="/pub/backupserver/source"
DESTSITE="ftp://srv:pass@ipaddress"
lftp -c "open -e \"mirror -Rev '$SOURCEPATH' '$DESTPATH'\" $DESTSITE"

Regards, Tobias

Ive used deltacopy (http://www.aboutmyip.com/AboutMyXApp/DeltaCopy.jsp) for similar things, both to and from the windows machine and was very happy with it. Used version (about) 3.0.6 or so against it with no issues. The setup is a bit different, but once its running it needs very little maintenance.
